AARP and COA present free driver safety class

Staff reports

AARP and the Ascension Council on Aging Announce a 100% Free 4-hour Driver Safety Class to veterans and active members of the military in Honor of Veterans Day this November. Participants of all ages encouraged to attend.

On Thursday, March 22, 2012 AARP and The Ascension Council on Aging will host an entertaining and informative four-hour Driver Safety refresher course to all veterans and their spouses at NO CHARGE. This AARP training class is the first and largest class of its type and has been taken by millions of drivers over the years. Finishing the class usually results in a significant auto insurance saving. Check with your auto insurance company to see how much you will save.

The AARP Driver Safety Program is the nation's first and largest course for drivers’ age 50 and older. The program has helped millions of drivers become safer on today's roads. AARP has offered its classroom course since 1979. Class will be 100 percent free to honor local veterans for their service on this occasion. Veterans attending will:

  • Tune up their driving skills and update your knowledge of the rules of the road
  • Learn defensive driving techniques
  • Discover ways to handle left turns, right-of-way, highway traffic and blind spots and much, much, more
  • Call (225) 257-4562 to register
  • Class size is limited so call right away to be sure of a reservation
  • Class will be held at the Gonzales Senior Center located at 526 S Irma Blvd

    Gonzales, LA 70737-3612

  • Please provide some form of Veterans' ID at the class.
  • 95% of the people who sign up for our Driver Safety classes do so because they can save 10% on their car insurance and auto insurance in Louisiana is the highest in the country.  The discount is typically good for three years (each insurance company is a little different).  The average family of two retired people, two cars, save an average of $210 per year if they have new cars, around $100 per year with older autos.
