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.

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 even 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. Discounted course coupons are available for download at www.aarp.org/educators.

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. Plus, participants may qualify for an automobile insurance discount by completing the classroom course (participants should check with their auto insurance agent for details).*

With courses offered in communities throughout the country, educators should have little difficulty finding a class that’s conveniently located. Classes are limited in size, however, so those interested should call early to find a class that fits their needs. Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Participants can also locate a course near you by visiting AARP Driver Safety’s Classroom Course Locator at www.aarp.org/findacourse or by calling 1-888-AARP-NOW (1-888-227-7669). Please note that this promotion is for the classroom course only. It does not apply to the AARP Driver Safety online course.

For more information, visit www.aarp.org/educators or email drive@aarp.org.

The AARP Driver Safety Educator Appreciation Promotion is sponsored by The Hartford.

*The insurance premium discount is not available in all states for the course. Requirements vary from state to state. Please consult your insurance agent for further details.
