Brush up your motoring skills through driver safety course

The two-day course will make the rounds in South Kitsap and Bremerton this winter

PORT ORCHARD — Do you believe you are a good driver? How about the guy driving the car coming toward you?

If you’re unsure of the answer to either of those questions, Port Orchard resident and driving instructor Ed Evans recommends that a refresher course in driver safety might be in order.

A two-day course sponsored by AARP is being offered through the winter at locations in South Kitsap and Bremerton to help drivers get a better grip on their motoring skills.

On Thursday and Friday, Jan. 23-24, the driver safety course will be offered at The Pearl in Bremerton from 9:15 a.m. to 1 p.m. both days. Attendance is required both days in order for attendees to receive an AARP course certificate. Evans says most insurance companies will authorize a discount for those who successfully attend the course.

The fee to attend the course is $15 for AARP members, $20 for non-members. Pre-registration is requested by calling 360-871-2323. Limited seating is available.

In February, the driver safety course will be offered at two locations: at The Willows in Bremerton and at the Manchester Library. The Bremerton session on Thursday and Friday, Feb. 20-21, will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. In Manchester, the course is set for Wednesday and Thursday, Feb. 26-27. That class will run from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each day.

Classes also have been scheduled for March, April, May and June in Bremerton, Port Orchard and Manchester. The course fee will increase by $5 beginning July 1.

For more information about the course and schedule, call 360-871-2323.
