For more than 30 years, AARP Driver Safety has helped drivers improve their driving skills and stay safe on the road. We couldn't have done it without our volunteers.
Nationwide, some 4,000+ AARP-trained volunteers instruct, administer and promote the AARP Smart Driver Course, CarFit events and We Need to Talk seminars. AARP Driver Safety volunteers contribute to the safety and well-being of their neighbors and community.
AARP Driver Safety has many volunteer positions available.*
