CHP – Age Well, Drive Smart Classes

A few slots remain for signups. To get your name on the list, contact VFW Post Commander Maryann Enciso at 559/676-6848.  The class is free, but reservations must be made no later than Wednesday, February 2, so time’s a-wastin’.

  • When:  Saturday, February 5, 2022
  • Time:  10 am to 12 noon
  • Where:  Oakhurst CHP Office, 40500 Redbud Dr, Oakhurst, CA 93644
  • Signup:  Maryann Enciso, 559/676-6848

The overall goal of the Age Well, Drive Smart program is to reduce the number of fatal and injury crashes caused by drivers aged 65 and older. The program focuses on safe driving practices and current California driving laws.

The curriculum also addresses the physical and mental changes associated with aging that can affect a person’s driving skills, while offering possible corrective options.

“As we get older, we gain valuable experience including driving skills. However, age can also introduce new challenges,” said CHP Commissioner Warren Stanley. “The Age Well, Drive Smart program is intended to assist California’s most experienced drivers in evaluating their own abilities and improving on them.”
