2010 Driver Safety Program Evaluation: A Comparison of Baseline and Follow-Up Findings

The AARP Driver Safety Program is the nation’s first and largest classroom course for drivers age 50 and older. The program has served over ten million people since its inception in 1979. The program was created to encourage safe driving among people age 50 and older. The course teaches participants the effects of aging on driving behaviors and how to adjust driving behaviors to accommodate for these changes.

In the past, the Driver Safety Program course has been evaluated via a mail survey among a sample of graduates after they complete the course. Behavior change was assessed during these evaluations; however, there were no baseline findings to compare the results to. In 2010, baseline surveys were collected among a sample of participants before they took the course to learn about their driving behaviors before being exposed to the course.

The purpose of this survey was to re-assess participants’ driving behaviors as well as knowledge of course retention approximately one month after they completed the AARP Driver Safety Program Course (Wave 2).
