AARP Driver Safety is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month by inviting Massachusetts AARP members and nonmembers to take the online course—in either Spanish or English—at a discounted rate of $5! The promotion runs from now through Tuesday, Oct. 15, 2013.

To redeem the $5 offer, participants should visit the AARP Driver Safety online course site, click the “Sign Up” button, and enter the promo code HHM2013 when prompted.

The usual cost for the online course is $15.95 for Massachusetts AARP members and $19.95 for non-members.

By taking a driver safety course you’ll learn the current rules of the road, defensive driving techniques, and how to operate your vehicle more safely in today’s increasingly challenging driving environment. You’ll learn how you can manage and accommodate common age-related changes in vision, hearing and reaction time.

Best of all, you may be eligible to save money on your annual automobile insurance rates. Check with your insurance agent to be sure. You might also be eligible to receive a discount on roadside assistance plans.
