You may save a few bucks on your auto insurance by signing up for one of the two-day safety courses offered by AARP. Cars have changed and roads have changed since you first got your license and had a road test. Maybe it’s time for a refresher.

The courses are geared for those over age 50, but any drivers may attend.
