Know a geezer who needs to take a driving safety course, whether or not they drive a Buick? George Kinney is your man

Last week I stopped by the Northfield Senior Center to take a few photos of George Kinney teaching an AARP Driving Safety Course. The Northfield Senior Center, Fall 2011 Program Guide (PDF) describes the class as:

Classroom instruction for motorists over age 50 that may lower automobile insurance rates for three years.

I  noticed there were a lot of Buicks in the Northfield Senior Center parking lot. It’s not an urban myth.

  1. Thanks, Griff. I just want to point out that anyone 55 or greater will get a 10% discount on their automobile insurance for taking the class, as specified in MN law — and those younger may be offered a discount from their insurance carrier. The first time around is an 8 hour class (either a Saturday marathon or two nights during the week)that is good for 3 years. Then a 4 hour refresher is required, every three years. It is certainly worth the cost of the class, and we won’t bore you to death.
