PORT ORFORD, OR.- An AARP Driver Safety Program class is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, November 5, at the Port Orford Senior Center under the auspices of Southwestern Oregon Community College (SWOCC).
All attendees 55 or older who complete the Driver Safety Program class are certified to receive a reduction in auto insurance from their insurance agent per Oregon state law, provided that all insured in the household are over 55 and have taken this class. Drivers who have previously taken the class and received auto insurance discounts are urged to renew their eligibility for reduced auto insurance rates by taking the class every three years if 69 and under and every two years if 70 and older.
Membership in AARP is not required for class attendance and the class is now open to all ages. The class reviews how to compensate for age-related changes, thereby reducing traffic violations, crashes, and chances for injury. Updated Oregon traffic laws will also be discussed.
Contact SWOCC at 541-247-2741 to register; pre-registration is required. The cost of tuition is $12 for AARP members and $14 for non-members. A workbook and other materials are provided. Class starts promptly at 9:00 a.m.
