California State Mandated Senior Discount

According to California State insurance law (Insurance Code Section 11628.3) your auto insurance company must provide drivers 55 years old or older who have a valid California driver's license with a discount on their auto insurance.

Who Can Take Our Courses?

People 55 years of age or older who have a valid California driver's license can take our courses.

Some insurance companies (AAA), give discounts to people 50 or older. Contact your auto insurance agent to find out if you qualify and learn how much you will save.

How Much Can You Save?

On average, people save up to 15% a year. The amount of your auto insurance discount will depend on various factors including your insurance company and driving record. 

Your discount is good for a period of three years. After three years, you can take the shorter 'Renewal' course to continue your auto insurance discount.

Contact your insurance company to see if you qualify and learn how much you will save.

How Long Are The Courses?

The Californa DMV mandates the following course lengths:

  • Initial Course: 6.6 hours (400 minutes)
  • Renewal Course: 4 hours (240 minutes)

National courses from the AARP and AAA are longer since they must comply with requirements from multiple other states. AARP's Initial Course is 8 hours long, which is 1.5 hours longer than our course!

California DMV Licensed

Our Mature Driver Tune-Up (Online) courses are approved and licensed by the California DMV (License #MO366).

What is an Online Mature Driver Improvement Course?

Senior drivers are embracing online Mature Driver Courses due to their convenience. Online Mature Driver Courses allow you to stop and start lessons anytime day or night. When you get tired, you just stop and start again when you are ready.

There are no classrooms you need to drive to, and you use your computer, tablet, or smartphone connected to the internet to read the content and watch videos. 





Initial vs. Renewal Courses

If you have never taken a Mature Driver Improvement Course you must take the 'Initial' 6.5 hour Course.

You can take the shorter 4-hour 'Renewal' course if you have already taken a Mature Driver Course and your current certificate has not expired more than 12 months ago, i.e., your certificate is not dated more than 4 years ago.

If you previously took a Mature Driver Improvement course from another school and your certificate has not expired, you can take our 'Renewal' course.

If you took a Mature Driver Improvement Course for another state, check with your insurance company to determine if you qualify to take our California 'Renewal' course.

Self-Paced Course  

Take the course on your own schedule. It's easy to stop when you get tired or busy.  Your progress is automatically saved so you start the course where you left off. Because the course isn't timed, and you have unlimited time to finish the course, you don't have to rush or finish it in one sitting! 

No Timers!

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. 

No Time Limit

Unlike other courses, we give you unlimited time to complete the course. Take a week, a month, or a year. When you finish is up to you.  Of course, the faster you finish, the sooner you qualify to get your auto insurance discount!

Required Hardware - No Software Installation Required

All you need to take our course is an internet-connected computer or tablet.

While you can take the course using a smartphone, we do not recommend it due to the small screen size.

You don't need to install any software or a mobile app and don't need a printer.

You can even use a combination of different devices, i.e., a computer at work and a tablet at home to finish the course.
