CLEARFIELD – The Clearfield 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 AARP Driver Safety Courses.
The classroom courses were 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 Clearfield Center for Active Living, 116 S. Second St., Clearfield, in two sessions: Wednesday and Thursday, April 18-19, from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.
The Refresher Course is offered at the Clearfield Center for Active Living, 116 S. Second St., Clearfield, on Thursday, May 3.
The class runs 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. The Refresher Course is open to individuals who have previously taken the original eight-hour course and or the refresher course within the past three years.
The classes are open to all drivers over 55, with the cost for non-AARP members at $20, while AARP members pay a discounted price of $15.
