AARP 55 ALIVE Driver Refresher Course

March 2017

Did you know that you can save up to $50 per year, per person, on your auto policy by taking a driving course?  Many of our clients take the 55 Alive Driving Refresher Course to earn the discount. The cost to you is only $12 if you are a current AARP member, or $14 for non-AARP members.  The credit from taking one course will apply for three to five years depending on the insurance carrier.  Anyone may take the class, but you must be 55 or older to qualify for the discount on your automobile insurance policy.
