Defensive Driving Classes

Classes are offered monthly at the South Coastal Library.  The 2016 schedule of classes and the appropriate contact to sign up for each one is shown below.


 Our chapter is pleased to join with national AARP to promote driver safety among older Americans.  The classes we offer arm drivers with the skills and knowledge they need to continue to be safe drivers.  Individuals who complete classes qualify for a discount on the liability portion of their auto insurance.  We offer both a comprehensive class for those who are enrolling for the first time and a refresher class required every three years for drivers to continue to receive the insurance discount.

Refresher classes are for those who have previously taken the Standard Driver's Class.  You must take the Refresher Class every three years to continue to receive a discount on your auto liability insurance.  The State is now mandating that you cannot take the Refresher Class prior to 90 days of expiration of your current certificate.

Refresher Classes are scheduled Monday, February 13. Class is full.  Monday, May 8 from 9 am to 1 pm.  To register, call Tom at (302)541-0780.

The next Standard Class for those who have never taken the class or it has been more than three years is scheduled for:  Monday, March 6 from 9 am to 3 pm.  To register, call Tom at (302) 541-0780.

All classes are held at the South Coastal Library in Bethany Beach.  The cost is $15 for AARP members and $20 for non-members.  If you wish to take the course on line, go to  The cost is $17.95 for AARP members and $21 for Non-members.
