Deal Details

AARP Has an online Driver Safety Course here...

http://www.aarpdriversafety.com/

Using the coupon code BHM2013 the course is only $5
The coupon for the online class seems to work whether you're a member or not.

Discounts vary from state to state. May need to contact your insurance provider for more info. Here is some more info from the AARP website (note: some states require insurance companies to discount insurance after a drivers safety class). http://www.aarp.org/home-garden/t...ounts.html

60 days to complete the 4- to 8-hour course (spread out, if you want).
The $5 offer, in honor of Black History Month, looks like it expires on Feb. 28.

If this was already posted, my apologies... searched, didn't find anything.

-Trevor

Yes, I am doing it only half way...to the Unit 4. I will hit the sacks & continue it tomorrow.

Don't worry about the quiz...it just a test of your common senses, except the traffic signs & lane.
Good luck...
Did it say anything about it only being valid for a certain amount of time. I want to pay now and take it months later. Did you see anything to suggest that wouldn't be possible?

The course completion certificate is good for three years, so you'll already be good to go when you get that car. You'll need a driver's license ID # when taking the course, since the certificate will be linked to your ID. The insurance discount, at least in NY, only applies to the liability portion of your premium, not the comprehensive collision portion.

I've been taking these courses every three years in-person for decades, and truly enjoy them. The instructors are usually retired police officers/troopers and always have personal experiences to share. And you can ask them tons of questions, like confirming if they have ticket quotas. bounce I think taking it in person is the way to go, but if you want to save a few bucks on the course and suffer through it, give on-line a try. I'm not due for another two years, so I'll skip this but will recommend it to others. It's the other people on the road that I have to worry about. look around
I wonder if the discounts vary by insurance company. Unless my CS rep is wrong, I was told I'd receive 10% off in three areas of coverage: collision, PIP (no fault), & liability. I had her repeat the information twice. For two drivers in NY, that's $280+ off over a 3-year period for me.

Definitely gonna make use of this. I actually have an appearance for a speeding ticket this Wednesday and even though I think it'll get dismissed, this will wipe out any points if I get any. And then 10% savings since I'm in NY. Great find OP, repped and TU!

Just make sure you do the class after your court appearance. The class must be completed after the points go on your record. Hoping you don't get any points though.

You can contact them here [aarpdriversafety.org] and see if you can pay now and take it a month or two later.

No, I don't see any restriction on the deadline to complete the course...which will take about 45 mins - 1 hr for each units (total of 7 units & the 8th unit is just a wrap-up.)

I just dived in...$5 for the safety driving course, which could save me 5-10% for the insurance premium. Yeah, it is much cheaper than a pack of ciggarette.

Thanks a ton to the OP, who sharing the code...!!!

In April I think they are going to switch to a Nassau system and allow plea bargaining.

Suffolk County to establish its own Traffic Violations Bureau.

The good news for motorists in Suffolk County however is that Governor Cuomo has signed a law allowing Suffolk to establish its own traffic violations bureau. The law allows Suffolk County to have sole control of the administration and collections of traffic summonses within its jurisdiction and will generate millions of dollars in additional revenue for the county. The law passed with strong support in both the NY Assembly and Senate and is expected to be in effect starting April 2013.

Although much of the rules for the new Suffolk County Traffic Violations bureau have not been made public, initial reports show that the county plans on hiring six prosecutors. This is a strong indication that the new Suffolk County TVB will entertain plea bargains which will heavily favor motorists much more than the current TVB.

I just finished the AARP drivers safety course. Did anyone else from NY not have a final exam at the end of Unit 8? If so, I'm guessing the quizzes in between chapters were used in it's place.
