Defensive driving course to be held

PRINCETON — Farm Bureau and COUNTRY Financial will host a defensive driving course on Thursday, Aug. 3, and Friday, Aug. 4, at the Farm Bureau office in Princeton, 535 Elm Place, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Both days must be attended to receive the certification.

The registration fee of $30 for members and $35 for non-Farm Bureau members covers course materials and lunch for both days. The course is open to anyone 55 years and older who are auto policy holders with any company. Those completing the course are eligible for a discount on their auto insurance. Check with your insurance representative 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, Pekin. The course is very 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 July 28. Class size is limited. Call the Bureau County Farm Bureau at 815-875-6468 to make your reservation or for more information.
