Defensive driving course to be held

KEWANEE — The Bureau, Henry and Stark County Farm Bureaus will host a defensive driving course from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 30-31 at the Black Hawk College Community Education Center in Kewanee at 404 E. Third St. Both days must be attended to receive the certification. The registration fee of $30 covers course materials and lunch for both days.

The course is open to people 55 and older who are auto policy holders. Those completing the course are eligible for a discount on their auto insurance. Check with your agent to clarify the amount of discount that will apply.

This program was developed by the National Safety Council and will be taught by safety specialist, Doug Sommer of Pekin. The course is informative, entertaining and relevant to today’s driving environment and standards. An examination is not required to complete the course or receive certification.

Reservations are required by Oct. 22. Class size is limited. Call the Bureau County Farm Bureau at 815-875-6468 to make your reservation or for more information.
