AAA is holding its first in-person driving training in more than a year. It will be open to both AAA members and non-members in Massachusetts. The class will be held during the week of spring vacation, April 19 – 23, at Blackstone Valley Technical School in Upton, Mass. The school covers several different towns in the state including, Milford, Upton, Grafton, Northbridge, Mendon, Hopedale, Hopkinton, Whitinsville, Uxbridge and Blackstone.
“We enjoy working with AAA very much,” says Eddie Evans, Academic Curriculum Coordinator at Blackstone Valley Technical School. “Being able to hold driver training courses here on campus has been a great benefit to our students and families. They get their academics here, they get their vocational training here, and now they can get their driver training here too. We’ve appreciated several times AAA working with families who may not be able to afford the entire course, and we envision working with AAA for years to come. We think this has been a mutually beneficial partnership.”
The 30-hour class will be limited to 40 students and held in the school’s auditorium in order to ensure social distancing requirements are met. Additionally, all students are required to wear masks. “We will be taking a very cautious approach to this, while continuing to offer online sessions,” said Steven Rossetti, Director of Driver Training at AAA Northeast. “Rest assured that we will continue to follow all CDC guidelines to ensure the protection of our students and instructors and maintain a safe environment. We’re hoping this is the start of a return to normalcy for driver training.”
Expert AAA driver training instructors lead the courses, in keeping with the club’s longtime commitment to traffic safety. AAA has educated young drivers on how to stay safe behind the wheel for more than 80 years. All training is based on data acquired from AAA’s decades of traffic safety research.
