It is open to all ages, but if you are a AARP member, it's only $15 to take the class and it's $20 for non-members. There is limited seating available so if you want to be a part of the upcoming class, you need to reserve your seat now by calling (337) 491-3737.  Coffee will be served.

According to the CPSO's Kayla Vincent,

Upon completion of the program you will receive a certificate which may entitle you to discounts on your car insurance.

Everybody likes to save money, so this would be a great way to save on insurance.
