AARP driver safety program

The American Association of Retired Persons’ Driver Safety Program will be offered May 24 (Tuesday) and May 26 (Thursday) at Wesley Willows, 4141 N. Rockton Ave., Rockford.

The course is a total of eight hours offered in two four-hour sessions. Classes will start at 12:30 p.m. and finish by 4:30 p.m. Participants must attend both days to receive credit from their automobile insurance company.

In Illinois, if an individual is at least 55, has a good driving record and takes a course approved by the Illinois Secretary of State, all automobile insurance companies must provide a discount on automobile insurance premiums.

There are no tests. The May 24 and 26 course has a limit of 25 participants, and a minimum of 12. You do not have to be a member of AARP to participate.

To register, call or visit the Wesley Willows Customer Service Desk, (815-654-2530).

Participants must bring their driver’s license and a check for $10, payable to AARP Driver Safety Program, to the first class.
