AARP driver safety class offered in November


Registration deadline set for Oct. 27

Sign up now to attend the AARP Driver Safety Course at the Fulton County Senior Center, 240 Clinton St., Wauseon, on Thursday, Nov. 5 from 8 a.m. to noon. This class is open to all Fulton County seniors age 60 and over. The class is limited to 20 people, so sign up soon. There is no over the road driving in this class room activity.

All participants will need a current driver’s license and a current AARP membership card, if you have one. The class fee for AARP members is $15. The fee for non-AARP members is $20. Reserve a slot with Beth at 419-337-9299 before Tuesday, Oct. 27.

This four-hour class includes watching videos and reviewing basic laws of the road. According to AARP Safety Driving Instructor Leonard Stovall, this defensive driving class is a great way to recognize and eliminate bad habits. “Even if we can save just one accident, then everybody wins.” Stovall said.

Upon completion, participants will receive a certificate. Some insurance companies will give discounts to those who participate in the course every three years. Contact your auto insurance company to find out if you qualify for a discount.
