Fairfield County motorists can get up to 5 percent off their insurance after they take the class.

AAA’s Driver Improvement Program classes teach the basics of defensive driving and provide current driving practice updates. 

Officer Ron Carosella will conduct the class. To register, click here or call 203-937-2595, Ext. 4684. 

“Our program is aimed at drivers with several years of experience who wish to improve or refresh their driving skills,” said Fran Mayko, AAA’s public affairs manager and Driver Improvement Program coordinator. “But there’s an even greater benefit to taking class if you’re over 60 -- you qualify for a discount of up to 5 percent on your auto insurance, per Connecticut state law.” 

To obtain a discount, drivers must present their insurance company with a completion certificate from a state-approved class. 

Some companies also will provide a discount to drivers 55 and older, but Mayko suggests motorists check with their individual carriers to determine age requirements and discount amounts. AAA will mail certificates to participants following the class.

The Greenwich Police Department is at 11 Bruce Place.
