Gloria McLoud, the AARP Representative for Madison County, is announcing the first course offering of the AARP’s Senior Driver Safety Course.
The one-day class will be held Wednesday, November 9, beginning at 9 a.m., and will meet at the Senior Citizens’ Center at 1161 SW Harvey Greene Drive.
The class is open to any senior, age 50 and over, and those who successfully complete the class will receive a 3-year certificate, which will qualify most drivers for discounts with their car insurance company.
McLoud urges those interested to call and enroll as soon as possible. Space in the class is limited.
The safe driver course is sponsored by the AARP, and is free to veterans and their spouses. Veterans will need only to bring their VA card or a copy of their DD-214 along with a picture ID.
For AARP members, the cost is $12 with ID. For non-AARP members, the cost is $14 with ID. Cost can be paid with a check, money order or cashier’s check.
Participants can brown bag their own lunches or pay for a lunch at the Senior Center; the cost for the latter is $4.15, and you must let the Senior Center know ahead of time, so they can have the correct number of lunches prepared.
For more information, or to enroll in a class, contact Gloria McLoud at (850) 929-2438.
