This fall, the Minnesota Highway Safety Center will be offering a 55+ Driver Improvement Course.
The class was designed to help out those that need to brush up on their driving skills, but don’t want to take a class with the high school students.
“This program has something for everyone, and participants will
be provided the latest information in regards to driver safety,” Jennifer Schwint of the Minnesota Highway Safety and Research Center said.
The course is open to the public, though pre-registration is required. A Minnesota Highway Safety and Research Center certified instructor will be teaching each class.
People age 55 and older who complete the course will then qualify for a 10 percent discount on their auto insurance premiums for three years, according to Minnesota law.
The eight-hour first-time course will take place on Sept. 14 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
at the Portman Community Recreation Center at 4601 McCulloch Street.
The four-hour refresher course will take place on Sept. 4 from 1 to 5 p.m. at American Legion Duluth, 5814 Grand Avenue.
The fee for the four-hour course is $20 and the fee for the eight-hour course is $24.
