Even if you think you already know the “rules of the road,” Roger Pfaff believes taking a refresher driver’s safety course every once in a while still is a good idea.


Even if you think you already know the “rules of the road,” Roger Pfaff believes taking a refresher driver’s safety course every once in a while still is a good idea.
Pfaff is teaching a driver safety class for seniors from 8 a.m. to noon May 10 and 11 at the Hesston Area Senior Center, 108 E. Randall. The program is targeted to drivers age 55 years and older, but anyone is welcome to attend.
Pfaff said the course is a basic review of driving tips — tips people likely have learned already but may have forgotten.
“The class brings up things people have known in the past,” he said.
The class includes videos and discussion time but does not require written tests or road driving.
Besides being a refresher course, Pfaff said the class even has a financial benefit for participants. Insurance companies licensed in Kansas give discounts for three years on auto insurance to drivers completing the class.
“It saves them money on their car insurance,” Pfaff said.
The fee for the class is $12 for AARP members and $14 for non-AARP members. AARP members must bring their AARP card to the class to qualify for the lower rate.
Pfaff said although advance registration is requested, it is not required. The class can accommodate up to 25 students.
To register for the class, call the Hesston Area Senior Center at (620) 327-5099.
