Our California DMV approved and licensed Mature Driver Tune-Up Courses are for people 50 years of age or older who have a valid California driver's license.
Contact your auto insurance agent to make certain you qualify - some insurance companies require you to be 55 or older to get a discount.
Initial vs. Renewal Course
If you have never taken a Mature Driver Improvement Course before, you must take the 400 minute 'Initial' Course.
You can take the shorter 240 minute 'Renewal' course if you have already taken a Mature Driver Course (even if it was from another school) as long as your certificate has not expired more than 12 month ago, i.e., your certificate is not dated over 4 years ago. If your certificate expired more than 12 months ago you must take the 'Initial' course.
If you took a Mature Driver Improvement Course for another state, check with your insurance company to determine if you qualify to take the 'Renewal' course.
How Do Mature Driver Improvement Courses Work?
According to California State insurance law (Insurance Code Section 11628.3) your auto insurance company must provide drivers 55 years old and older who have a valid California driver's license with a discount on their auto insurance.
The discount is good for a period of 3 years after you provide proof of successfully completing a Mature Driver Improvement Course like our Mature Driver Tune-Up Course.
Some insurance companies offer this discount to drivers who are 50 years old and older. Contact your insurance company to see if you qualify.

Our Mature Driver Tune-Up online course meets the DMV's required minimum course length of 400 minutes for a person's first Mature Driver Improvement course. After three years, you are allowed to take a shorter 240 minutes long "Refresher" course.
Our courses do not have any annoying timers that make you wait to proceed to the next section. This means that you can take your time and finish as fast as you can read and watch the videos.
Self Paced Course With No Time Limit
Take the course on your own schedule. You can start and stop as many times as you like. Your progress is automatically saved and (unlike our competitors), we give you unlimited time to complete the course.
Because our course doesn't have timers, you can easily skip through the lessons as fast as you can read without having to stop and wait to proceed. Courses from our competitors, i.e., AARP, have timers that make you wait. Life's too short to have to wait! This is one of the reasons why people love our course.
24/7 Course Access
You get convenient access to the online course 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
