Menu Driver Improvement Program
Grow Your Business.
The AAA Driver Improvement Program can help you grow your business by reaching more students. Instruction is delivered in eight 50-minute modules that can be presented as a total program. Or you can use individual units for presentations to civic groups or “lunch and learn” seminars.
Get Certified. Get Support.
We require all instructors to go through our certification program before they can purchase or teach with our program. This means a greater level of support for you, plus networking opportunities to further grow your reach.
Our program comes with two versions: AAA Driver Improvement Program and AAA RoadWise Driver. AAA Roadwise Driver is a true senior-focused version of the program which addresses natural age-based changes, managing one’s medications, adjusting habits to reduce risk, and the value of planning for ongoing mobility.
You must get permission from your local AAA club as part of the certification process. Once certified, you can be confident of standing out and above your competition.
This program is for teaching:
The defensive driving material in this course has qualified traffic offenders for point reduction since 1977. Major insurance carriers also may reduce premiums for drivers who complete this program.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that traffic safety programs help companies protect fleet employees while cutting costs related to crashes and lost productivity. The relevance and flexibility of the AAA Driver Improvement Program make it a cost-effective option for both large and small fleets.
As people age, their bodies undergo various changes which can have a huge impact on driving risk. This can be a difficult transition for many. Getting tips and training on how to cope with these changes can prove to be extremely beneficial in maintaining one’s independence as they age. A major benefit for seniors to take this course is the potential reduction in their insurance premium.
