– Rep. Rich Irvin (R-Huntingdon/Mifflin/Centre) is hosting two, one-day Seniors for Safe Driving programs to help sharpen the driving skills of older motorists. The programs will be held on March 12 and May 20, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Fairfield Inn and Suites, 9970 Shaner Blvd. in Huntingdon
“These one-day classes provide a great opportunity for older adults to learn about practical tips to improve their safety when driving, and also earn a discount on their automobile insurance – it’s a win-win,” said Irvin.
The Seniors for Safe Driving program is beneficial for older drivers looking to improve their driving skills through gaining a better knowledge of how to adjust their driving techniques and habits to compensate for many of the challenges facing older motorists.
The program is open to drivers age 55 and older. There is no on-the-road driving required and no exam will be given. At the completion of the class, motorists will be eligible to receive a minimum 5% discount on their auto insurance premiums.
Individuals interested in attending the class may register online at SeniorsForSafeDriving.com
