Free course for veterans

To recognize and thank veterans for their honorable service and dedication to our country, the AARP Driver Safety Program is proud to offer a free classroom course to them and their spouses during November.All military personnel active duty, retired, guard or reserve are eligible. So are spouses, widows and widowers. That’s a savings of $12 to $14 for a course that could help drivers save as much as $100 on auto insurance and help refresh driving skills.

The offer is good for veterans of any age, but could be particularly valuable for older drivers. That’s because state law mandates discounts for drivers ages 55 and older who complete courses such as the AARP Driver Safety Program. Those discounts typically range from $25 to $100.AARP has about 40 Driver Safety classroom courses scheduled throughout Tennessee during November. Spots must be reserved.

This offer does not apply to the online AARP Driver Safety Program courses that are available online. Those are still a good deal $15.95 for AARP members/$19.95 for non-members. And if you can’t find a free classroom course in your area during November, please consider paying for one $12 for AARP members/$14 for non-members.Veterans include those who have served in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, National Guard/Reserves or Coast Guard. To receive a free classroom course, provide some form of military identification, including but not limited to: military ID, discharge papers DD Form 214, American Legion card, Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) card, dependent ID card, etc., to the host organization and or instructor.
