Sign-up deadline Monday for AARP Safe Driving class
An AARP Safe Driving class has been scheduled at the Marshall County Library in Holly Springs for April 24 and 25.
The class will meet from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. each day.
AARP Safe Driving classes are eight-hour driver education refresher courses for drivers 50 years of age and over. The law in Mississippi mandates that students 55 years of age and up who complete the class be entitled to receive an appropriate discount on their automobile insurance premium for the following three years.
You do not have to be a member of AARP to enroll and you will not be required to pass any exams or tests. You must attend both four-hour sessions to receive your completion certificate. To register for the class, call 662-252-3823 at the library before April 23. A $10 materials fee is payable at the start of the first day of class. Class size will be limited to 25 students. Please pay by cash only.
