AARP Salutes Tennessee Veterans with Free Driver Safety Classes


Classes offered to current, former military throughout November

AARPNashville, TN – 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 the month of November.

The course is open to all military personnel – active duty, retired, guard, or reserve; as well as spouses, widows and widowers.

That’s a savings of $12.00 to $14.00 for a course that could help drivers save as much as $100.00 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 age 55+ who complete courses like the AARP Driver Safety Program. Those discounts typically range from $25.00 to $100.00.

AARP has about 40 Driver Safety classroom courses scheduled throughout Tennessee during November, but they fill up fast, so please reserve a spot. To locate a class near you, visit or call 1.888.227.7669 (AARP NOW).

This offer does not apply to the online AARP Driver Safety Program courses that you take while sitting at your computer. 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 ($12.00 for AARP members/$14.00 for non-members).

Editor’s Note: 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.
