Brookhaven Highway Department Announces Upcoming Defensive Driving Classes

Farmingville, NY –  As part of his ongoing efforts to keep Brookhaven Town motorists safe on the roadways, Superintendent of Highways Daniel P. Losquadro is announcing upcoming defensive driving classes.

 In conjunction with American Safety Inc., the Town of Brookhaven will be hosting several classes at its local recreation centers and Brookhaven Town Hall. Residents are encouraged to choose the time and location that is most convenient for them. All classes are held in two 3-hour sessions or one 6-hour session; participants taking the two 3-hour sessions must attend both classes to receive their certificate of completion. In addition to saving motorists money on insurance, completion of the course, which provides professional advice on how to avoid accidents, entitles participants to remove up to four points off of their driver’s license.

 “My husband and I attended a recent defensive driving class,” said Bonnie Cook-Patti, of Ridge. “It was the best $25 I ever spent. I am recommending all of my family, friends and neighbors attend one of these Town of Brookhaven classes.”

 Classes will be held at the following locations/dates:
