Age Well Drive Smart Program
The mission of the Age Well Drive Smart program is to reduce motor vehicle collision and pedestrian deaths and injuries experienced by older Californians and to increase seniors’ alternate transportation options when driving is no longer an option. The class is designed to address common concerns shared amongst senior drivers as well as introduce transportation options if someone is no longer able to drive. We hope to encourage people to have a plan in place if they find themselves without a driver license and will provide resources to utilize in that planning process.
