AARP Offers Driving Course for the Deaf

WEST HARTFORD, Conn., PRNewswire/ -- AARP, in cooperation with the Connecticut Commission of Deaf and Impaired Hearing, will present a special 55-Alive Defensive Driving course for deaf drivers next week.

The course will be taught by Helene and Dom Bonura, experienced signers from Vermont, who have traveled extensively presenting the program.

The AARP 55-Alive Defensive Driving Program is for drivers 50 and older. The course discusses how aging effects reaction time and vision, and addresses problems facing senior drivers. There are no physical or written tests. After completion, the participant may be eligible for a significant insurance discount.

The course for the deaf will be held at the office of the state Commission of Deaf and Hearing Impaired, 1245 Farmington Ave., West Hartford, Conn. The eight-hour course is given in two four-hour sessions: Monday, Dec. 10, from 1 to 5 p.m., and Tuesday, Dec. 11, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Cost is $10.
