The National Safety Council has made major revisions to its Defensive Driving Course for seniors. The course will be offered on Oct. 6 and 7 at DeKalb County Farm Bureau.
Members 55+ are welcome to register for the course at the Farm Bureau office. At the completion of the two-day course, members will receive a three-year certification and be eligible for a discount on their automobile insurance.
The course runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. Participants must attend both days to receive certification.
As in the past, this program continues to stress the principles of defensive driving, as well as adding new visual aids and materials.
The instructor for the course is Doug Sommer of Pekin, who was a safety educator with COUNTRY Financial for over 30 years.
The Defensive Driving Course is being cosponsored by DeKalb County Farm Bureau and the COUNTRY Financial agency in DeKalb County.
Reservations are required and class size is limited. Cost to participate is $25 and includes course fees, materials, and a hearty lunch both days.
Call the Farm Bureau office to make reservations, 815-756-6361. The deadline to register is Oct. 4.
