Sheriff offers AARP safe driving class

Staff Report

GALLIPOLIS — A safe driving class, sponsored by the AARP in connection with Gallia County Sheriff Joe Browning and the 911 Call Center, will be Oct. 2 at the Gallia County 911 Center located at 1911 Jackson Pike, Gallipolis.

The class will be from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

The Safe Driving Program is a classroom driver improvement course for drivers aged 50 and older, although there is no age limit. This program developed by AARP can sharpen driving skills, help prevent accidents and keep older drivers on the road longer and more safely.

For many people, the Safe Driving Class can also save money on car insurance. Ohio Law permits auto insurance carriers to offer a discount on premiums to qualified graduates of the approved AARP class. Policyholders should contact their carriers for more information about such discounts.

Registration forms can be completed by calling Browning’s office at 740-446-4612 Ext: 352. The cost of the class is $15 for AARP members and $20 for non-members. Checks are to be made payable to AARP or have correct amount.

People will need an AARP member number (if applicable) and an operator’s license number when they call.
