The Minnesota Highway Safety Center will offer several driving courses in March aimed at drivers age 55 and up.

It is offering two four-hour refresher driver improvement courses and one eight-hour first-time course.

The first refresher course will be held from 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 15, and the second will take place 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, March 26. Both sessions will take place at the Alexandria Senior Center.

It is also offering an eight-hour first-time driver improvement course over two days, from 4-8 p.m. Wednesday-Thursday, March 16-17.

The courses are open to the public, and the class will save drivers 10% on their auto insurance. Completion of an eight-hour course qualifies drivers for the discount, and they are required to take the four-hour refresher course every three years to maintain the discount.


A Minnesota Highway Safety & Research Center certified instructor will provide updates on defensive-driving tips, changes in laws, vehicle technology, and traffic safety.

The cost of the four-hour refresher course is $24 and the eight-hour course costs $28. For more information or to register, visit or call 1-888-234-1294.
