Class fee for AARP members is $20 and for non-AARP is $25 payable by check made out to AARP, which will be collected on the first day of class. It helps to have the check made out in advance. Bring AARP membership card, driver’s license, and a pen to class and plan to arrive 15 minutes early the first day to allow for registration. If once registered you find you are unable to attend the class, please be courteous and call to cancel your reservation to give the spot to someone else. The classes are open to any age NY licensed driver. Class size is limited for classes.
