Mature Driver Improvement Courses
There are three organizations that offer the PennDOT-approved Basic and Refresher Mature Driver Improvement courses at various locations throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and online. All of these approved courses address the specific safety needs of the mature driver by helping the mature driver understand how aging affects driving abilities and providing insight about driving on today’s roadways. There are no written or practical driving tests. The course fees are moderate, but vary with each organization.
In addition, under Pennsylvania law, drivers 55 and older are eligible to receive a 5 percent discount on their vehicle insurance by completing the Basic Mature Driver Improvement Course. In order to maintain the discount, individuals would have to take the Refresher Mature Driver Improvement Course every three years. Individuals should check with their insurance carrier for specifics of their program.
