AARP to sponsor safe driving class at O’Neill

A safe driving class sponsored by the AARP will be given from 1 to 5 p.m. Sept. 25 at the O’Neill Center, 333 Fourth St., Marietta.

The Safe Driving Program is a classroom driver improvement course for drivers aged 50 and older, although there is no age limit. This program developed by AARP can sharpen driving skills, help prevent accidents and keep older drivers on the road longer and more safely.

For many people, the Safe Driving Class can also save money on car insurance. Ohio Law permits auto insurance carriers to offer a discount on premiums to qualified graduates of the approved AARP class. Policyholders should contact their carriers for more information about such discounts.

Registration forms can be completed by calling O’Neill Center, 740-373-3914. The cost of the class is $19.95 for AARP members and $24.95 for non-members. Checks are to be made payable to AARP.

You will need your AARP member # (if applicable) and also your operator’s license number when you call.
Call O’Neill Center, 740-373-3914, for registration.
