Defensive Driving for 55-Plus

Improve your driving skills, and if you’re 55 or older, get a discount on your personal auto insurance.
The Defensive Driving Course teaches basic crash prevention techniques and has a proven record of
reducing traffic violations and incidents. The class consists of lecture, videos and discussions. There is
no behind-the-wheel driving and there are no tests.
