Williams-Grand Canyon News

PEORIA, Ariz. - AARP Driver Safety will waive tuition fees to its classroom course in Arizona and across the country during November for veterans in recognition of their dedication and commitment to service.

The usual cost for taking the course is $12 for AARP members and $14 for nonmembers.

All military personnel, active duty, separated, or retired, are eligible to receive a free AARP Driver Safety classroom course. Military personnel include those individuals that serve or have served in the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, National Guard, Reserves, or Coast Guard. Military spouses (including widows, domestic partners and widowers) and children are also eligible to take the free class.

"With Veterans Day approaching, AARP Driver Safety would like to honor vets by offering this special promotion for our in-person classroom course," said AARP Arizona Driver Safety State Coordinator Jerry Hartley. "We invite them to take advantage of the class free of charge."

All participants who redeem the Veterans Promotion must present a completed coupon. The coupon asks for name and address information and the branch of military service and years of service. Coupons will be available at the classroom site. Participants will not be asked to provide any form of military identification. All registrations for any given course are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Since 1979, AARP Driver Safety has offered the nation's first and largest course for drivers 50 and older and has helped millions of drivers stay in command of the road. Participants learn proven safety strategies to help maintain confidence behind the wheel.

"AARP Driver Safety in-person classes are offered all across the state, making it easy for veterans in Arizona to locate a course near them," added Hartley.

Classroom courses can be located by calling (866) 238-0294 or visiting As an alternative to the classroom course, veterans and their families can take the AARP Driver Safety online course at 50 percent off the normal course price. In the online course, participants will learn the same valuable tips and information as they would in the classroom course but they can take it at their own pace from their home.

To receive 50 percent off of the online course visit and enter the promotion code "Veterans" when prompted during registration and checkout. The promotion code is valid from Nov. 1 through Nov. 30. Upon registration, participants will have 60 days to complete the online course.

The insurance premium discount is given voluntarily by some auto insurance companies. Please consult your insurance agent for further details.
