AARP Driver Safety’s Educator Appreciation Promotion is offered to those individuals who have been an educator, or have worked for a school district or university in any capacity. This includes everyone from custodians, secretaries, aides, pre-school teachers, college professors, guidance counselors, school nurses, cafeteria workers, and parents who home-school their children. Participants redeeming the $5 course offer will not be asked to provide any form of educator identification, but will be required to fill out a coupon.
The AARP Driver Safety course teaches valuable defensive driving skills and provides a refresher of the rules of the road. Since 1979, the course has also helped over 14 million drivers learn proven safety strategies and tips for how to adapt one’s driving to compensate for physical and cognitive changes that may come with aging.
Participants in North Dakota can qualify for an automobile insurance discount of up to five percent by completing the classroom course. Check with your auto insurance agent for details.

The Educator Appreciation Promotion compliments AARP’s long history of supporting and serving teachers. In 1947, Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus founded NRTA (formerly known as the National Retired Teachers Association) to help address the economic challenges and health needs of retired educators. It wasn’t until 1958 that Dr. Andrus opened the organization to all older Americans, and AARP was born.
