The Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office is again offering defensive driving classes that can save county residents money on their motor vehicle insurance premiums.

The initial class will be Tuesday, April 28 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. in University Center Room 901 at Rowan College of Gloucester County, 1400 Tanyard Rd., Deptford Township.  The second half of the course is scheduled for Wednesday, April 29, 2015 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the same location. Attendance on both nights is required.


The class will also be given in a one-day session on May 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Scott Hall Room 709 at Rowan College.

A $10 processing fee will be charged for class materials and removal of up to two points from a driver’s record.  This is allowed by state law every five years and can reduce insurance premiums.  The fee is payable at the class. Cash will not be accepted. Checks should be made payable to the National Safety Council.  Insurers also give a five-percent rate reduction for completing the course, which uses lessons developed by the National Safety Council on confronting road risks.

Class size is limited. Participants must be Gloucester County residents and have a valid New Jersey driver’s license.  To register,  e-mail Phyllis Covici at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or telephone her at 856-384-5534.
