In California, those who are 55 years of age or more are eligible for a discount on their automobile insurance if they attend the Mature Driver Safety course. Completion of this course provides a DMV certificate that is valid for 3 years of insurance discounts. Check with your insurance provider to learn the discount amount for your policy.
Topics covered in this course include risk management, a review of traffic laws, updates on new laws, habits that can compensate for the natural mental and physical changes of aging, aggressive driving, impaired driving and much more. The excellent curriculumn plus the council's interactiveSmartboard make this one of the most popular courses at the council and it often sells out very quickly. The first time certification requires a full-day course. If you have already taken this course in the past, see the information under Mature Driver Safety - Renewal.
