Does anyone who's taken this know if there are any current promo codes? Need to take a refresh on my defensive driving course.

How much do you get off your ins on Avg? Just wondering if it's worth a 4 or 8 hour video

I believe it's a 10% discount on the auto insurance and it lasts for 3 years.

Geico sent me a notice I would lose my $7 something discount if I didn't retake the course. Was more with State Farm, might have been 10%. I would check if you're
doing it for the discount.

I finally decided to try this with my insurance provider, GEICO. It was a real PITA. They had specific vendors, and AARP was not one of them. The course was divided up into like 8 sections, and each section had like 5 subsections. After each 10 page subsection was a test. The test asked very specific questions, so I had to write down all these silly specifics to remember them all. Everything was timed, but to a minimum. So if you could finish a subsection in like 5-10 minutes, but it was timed for 45 minutes, you could not move on, but had to wait until the 45 minutes were up. At the end is your final exam, which is like 50 questions. So I ended up taking 3 days to finish the course as I could not stand the frustration and I had other things to do. And 90% of the questions were on alcohol and speeding., and I do not really speed and do not drink alcohol, so this was absolutely worthless to me. After passing the final I got a certification number that they stated would be sent to GEICO but that never happened. I had to call Geico and hound them about this. It was a good thing a saved a copy of my certificate. I have yet to receive my discount, but if it is $7 I will be pissed.

Certainly did not have the same problems you did. Agree the course takes time. But you can let it run until the elapse have pass.

If you capture the screens, you can easily answer the questions with find. But for many questions, the answers were obvious. You can also take the test multiple times.

Regarding the call to Geico, that was a simple thing. Took a couple of minutes to get the credit. Painless.

The savings is substantial if you are on a family plan.

Check with your insurer before taking an online course. My wife and I took the AARP online course several years ago and received a nice insurance discount for a couple of years. After taking the course again after the discount expired, I was informed that our insurer (Auto Owners) will now NOT accept an online safe drivers course. They will honor the AARP course that you take in a classroom.
