Participating in these classes allows a 10 percent reduction in car insurance each year for three years. The first class is for eight hours. The refresher is taken every three years and it is four hours. Classes are held at the Sebeka United Methodist Church. If a group of four or more wish to have a special time or date it can be arranged.

In case of inclement weather please confirm class day and time.
