Sen. Brooks Invites Seniors to Take Safe Driving Course April 19

HARRISBURG Sen. Michele Brooks encourages senior citizens to complete a four-hour driver safety course at the Greenville Senior Center from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday, April 19.

By refreshing their driving skills, older Pennsylvanians are eligible to receive a five percent discount on their automobile insurance premiums for three years. 

“The laws and rules of the road are changing all the time, as are the features of newer cars,” Sen. Brooks said.  “This course is designed to help drivers stay up-to-date on the latest laws and technological advancements. It also helps them save money on car insurance, avoid traffic tickets and accidents, and stay safe on the roads so they can drive for years to come.”

The course was developed by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) in conjunction with Pennsylvania-based insurance companies.

The Greenville Senior Center is located at 45 Alan Avenue in Greenville.

“I encourage seniors to sign up for this course,” Senator Brooks said. “It can save them money in so many ways—in insurance premiums, medical treatment, car repairs, traffic tickets, and more. More importantly, it can save families the heartache of losing someone in a tragic car accident.  Education can help keep senior drivers safer on today’s busy roadways.”
