COALPORT – The Coalport Center for Active Living, in partnership with the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), is offering area individuals aged 55 and older the opportunity to take the AARP Driver Safety Course.
The classroom course was developed by AARP to help drivers remain safe on today’s roads while providing the bonus of a three-year discount on the course graduates’ car insurance.
All automobile insurance companies conducting businesses in Pennsylvania are required to provide a premium discount to graduates of the Driver Safety Program who are 55 years of age and older.
Couples who both have a driver’s license are each required to be certified in the program in order to be eligible for the discount. Although geared to drivers 55 and over, the class is open to all ages, and AARP membership is not a requirement.
The original, eight-hour class will be given at the Coalport Center for Active Living, 850R Main St., Coalport, in two sessions: Monday and Tuesday, Aug. 7-8, from 5 p.m. – 9 p.m.
The class is open to all drivers over 55, with the cost for non-AARP members at $20, while AARP members pay a discounted price of $15. Checks are to be made payable to AARP and are to be given to the instructor on the first day of class.
Class size is limited and the required registration is taken on a first-come, first-serve basis, so early sign-up is suggested. You may register by contacting the Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging at 814-672-3574 or 1-800-225-8571.
Information on this and other programs, meals and activities is available by calling the Coalport Center at 814-672-3574 or 1-800-225-8571 or visiting the CCAAA Web site at www.ccaaa.net.
Programs and services of the Agency are funded in part by the Pennsylvania Department of Aging, the Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging Inc., Mature Resources Foundation and local and consumer contributions.
