Kentucky’s Driver Safety volunteers are preparing to honor our nation’s veterans with free classroom courses beginning November 1, 2012. For the second year in a row, the AARP Driver Safety classroom course will be offered at no cost to active military, veterans – and their families – in appreciation for their service. The AARP Driver Safety classroom course will be free and a 50 percent off discount will be available for the online course to all members of the U.S. armed forces — active duty, veteran, guard or reserve — regardless of age, November 1 through November 30, 2012.
AARP Driver Safety is driven by local, committed and trained volunteer instructors- and more are needed in Kentucky. In 2011, the response from veterans and veteran organizations was overwhelming. According to Kentucky’s Driver Safety State Coordinator, Leon Morrow, “Veterans in Kentucky made it clear that they appreciated and valued this special offer and wanted more classes to be available in 2012. Our goal is to identify, recruit and train more volunteer instructors to make this happen for our veterans and their families.”
Kentucky’s AARP Driver Safety is seeking new volunteer instructors to help participants in classes held across the state to brush up on the latest information about traffic laws, learn key points to help you drive as safely as possible and keep up to speed on changes in road design and automotive technology.
Interested volunteers receive extensive training, support and the tools they need to be effective instructors. Depending on the individual volunteer’s schedule and location, trainings will be organized across the state to help meet the demands of November’s special offer to veterans.

Why take the AARP Driver Safety course? Today’s traffic laws and automobiles have changed – sometimes, more than you know. In Kentucky, when you complete a certified driver training course, state law provides you with a discount on your car insurance. The discounted amount may vary, however, depending on your insurer. Other restrictions may apply. Consult your insurance agent for details.
