Gloucester County residents have an opportunity to remove points from their driving record with a defensive driving course that will be held next week.
The Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office announced the six-hour course will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 14 and Thursday, Nov. 15 at the Gloucester County College Instructional Center. The course takes place in two separate sessions on those nights—students must attend both sessions. Residents who complete the course will have penalty points removed from their driving record and get a 5 percent discount on their auto insurance.
The course, which was held three times last year, uses lessons that are developed by the National Safety Council. It includes lessons on driving in poor weather conditions, as well driving with trucks, bikes, pedestrians and aggressive drivers. The class will be taught by Det. Nick Schock and costs $10.
Residents who are interested in the class can call Phyllis Covici at the Prosecutor's Office at 856-384-5534 or email at email@example.com. Only 25 spots exist for the class, so space is limited.
