In an effort to increase driver awareness and safety on the state’s roads, your New Jersey dealership encourages you to participate in the upcoming AARP Driver Safety Program. The program is taking place on February 9 and 10 and the South Jersey Healthcare Elmer Hospital at 501 West Front Street and drivers of all ages are welcome.
Drivers who attend and complete both courses will receive a certificate of completion. They can then that the certificate to their insurance company to qualify for a five percent discount on their premium. If they have points on their license, the certificate will also reduce those points by two.
The program includes a refresher classroom course designed for older drivers, but all ages are encouraged to attend. Defensive driving techniques, safety and new traffic laws will be the focus of the program. Instructors will also teach older drivers how to make proper adjustments to accommodate for changes in hearing, vision and reflexes.
AARP members can take both courses for a cost of $12 while non-members are charged $14. It’s worth the price to get the reduction in insurance costs, though. The program may also make you feel more comfortable about going to your Bound Brook area Chevrolet dealer and driving away in a new or certified pre-owned car. Either way, learning how to be a safer driver is a responsibility we all need to share.
