|Sharpen driving skills and reduce insurance costs with AARP driving class beginning April 17|
Keep your driving skills sharp while at the same time reducing your insurance rate by taking an AARP Driver Safety Course being offered by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.
Kansas insurance companies are required to offer a discount if presented with a certificate of completion of this AARP Driving Course. No test will be given and no AARP membership card is required. To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under 50 plus and then under hobbies & special interests. In the printed catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keyword “driving.”
This program is offered at 10 a.m. on Wednesday and Thursday, Aril 17 and 18 at the Tomahawk Ridge Community Center, 11902 Lowell, Overland Park. The cost for two five-hour sessions is $12 for AARP members or $14 for nonmembers and can be paid at the door. Space is limited, so be sure to reserve your spot at least one week in advance of the class, start by calling (913) 642-6410.
While JCPRD 50 Plus programs are primarily for people who are age 50 or older, interested parties who have not yet reached that magic age may still be able to attend. Persons 18 and older who are interested in a 50 Plus class are invited to call the district's Registration Department at (913) 831-3359, and if space is available without forfeiting the place of a person over 50, their registration can be taken.
The JCPRD Activities catalog, with information and a registration form, is available for pickup at all Johnson County Library branches. For more information or to register, call (913) 831-3359. To register online and for updated program listings, visit the district's website at www.jcprd.com.
