AARP's Driver Safety Program course is designed for everyone

Gloria Farley, veteran AARP safe driving instructor and Associate State Coordinator of Washington State Zone IV, taught a class of 25 students at Peninsula Senior Center in Klipsan Beach last Friday and Saturday.

KLIPSAN - "Every time I teach the driver safety class I learn something new and I've been in police work and dealing with traffic laws for over 13 years," volunteer instructor Loretta Ostgaard says of the driver safety program she and Gloria Farley offer at the Peninsula Senior Center in Klipsan Beach.

Farley, who is associate state coordinator of Washington State Zone IV and director of nine counties, says, "The driver safety program is available for drivers of all ages." She taught a group of 25 students last weekend at the Senior Center. Tom Darcy of the Department of Licensing and a WSP trooper also often help Farley with the instruction and demonstrations.
