Bill to Give Senior TN Drivers Insurance Break

Nashville, TN – Legislation that would give senior drivers in Tennessee a discount on their insurance for taking an online driving course is now headed to Governor Phil Bredesen. The measure supported by the AARP was unanimously approved by the House. The companion bill was passed by the Senate last week.

The AARP currently offers an eight-hour driving class for its members, but people who live in rural areas of the state sometimes can't find a location where they can take it. Insurance discounts are currently offered to those who take the class in-person. The governor is expected to consider the legislation once it arrives on his desk.
