2020 Courses Canceled Due to COVID-19 Pandemic

For the safety of our participants and instructors, the Roselle Police Department and AARP have canceled AARP Smart Driver Courses for 2020. Please check back for availability of classes for 2021.


The Roselle Police Department, in cooperation with the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) hosts a Smart Driver Course. The class meets from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on each day of the two-day course, at the Roselle Police Department, 103 S. Prospect. The cost is $15 for AARP members or $20 for non-members for the April course; cost is $20 for AARP members or $25 for non-members for the September course. The fee covers all classroom materials. Coffee and rolls will be served.

2020 Course Dates:

  • April 6 & 7 - CANCELED
  • September 28 & 29 - CANCELED
The program is a two-day course and is open to all drivers. Participants will refine existing driving skills and develop safe, defensive driving techniques. They will review how to handle adverse driving conditions and traffic hazards and learn about the effects of aging and medication on driving, as well as much more.

Currently, several automobile insurance companies, in the majority of states provide a multi-year premium reductions to graduates of the course who are 55 years of age or older. The Smart Driver Course results in safer roads for everyone. Older drivers benefit from increased confidence on the road, better driving records, lower insurance rates and a continuing mobile, independent lifestyle for additional years.
