You may save a few bucks on your auto insurance by signing up for one of the two-day safety courses offered by AARP. Cars have changed and roads have changed since you first got your license and had a road test. Maybe it’s time for a refresher.

The courses are geared for those over age 50, but any drivers may attend.

The Washington Oakes Retirement Community is holding a two-day AARP Driver Safety Course from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Nov. 5 and 6.

The cost is $15.95 for AARP members and $19.95 for nonmembers.

Veterans and their spouses can take the workshop for free.

Course fees may be paid to the instructor Nov. 5.

Washington Oakes is at 1717 Rockefeller Ave., Everett.

To register call 425-339-3300,
