Get your chance to cut car insurance with defensive driving class

Everyone loves a discount.

If you are 55 or over and haven’t taken advantage of the defensive driving classes yet for your 10 percent discount on your car insurance we are offering an eight-hour class needed.

From 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. on July 10 and 11 at the Mower County Senior Center each night will be half of the 8 hour class. If you haven’t taken a class yet, now is your chance.

We don’t offer them very often. Before you can take a refresher class you need to take an eight-hour starter class.

The cost for the class for senior center members is $20 and $23 for non-members.

The next four-hour defensive driving class is 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 11. This is a refresher course needed every three years after the eight hour class is taken for a continued 10 percent discount on your insurance. Cost for members is $16 and $19 for non-members.

You may not be old now, but if you’re lucky, one day you will be. We look forward to seeing you at our many programs at the Ssenior center.

Don’t forget our coffee shop where every day you can have homemade soup for $1 and sandwich for 50 cents. You are always welcome at the center. See you here.
