Wilton’s Senior Center offers a Driver Improvement Program that may offer drivers 60 years and older an auto insurance discount.

The AAA course is aimed at experienced drivers who wish to improve their driving skills and review defensive driving basics. By completing this class drivers 60 years of age and older may qualify for a minimum 5% discount* on their auto insurance. In fact, some insurers provide that discount to experienced drivers as young as 55. We encourage you to check with your insurer to see what benefits they offer. (*To determine what auto insurance benefit, if any, is associated with the program, contact your insurer. The discount doesn’t cover uninsured motorist, rental reimbursements, and towing and labor costs. Check with your insurer.)

The course is taught by Sergeant David Hartman of the Wilton Police Department. A graduate of Wilton High School with 18 years experience in law enforcement, Hartman was on the traffic division for five years, is a field training officer, a child safety seat technician certified by the NHTSA and the day shift supervisor.

The course is offered on three days:  Saturday, April 29; Thursday, May 18; or Saturday, June 24. It is held at Comstock Community Center from 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.. There is no cost to take the course.
