Traffic School for Senior Discounts

Senior Discount

- question from 12/31/2022 by Judy, filed under Senior Discount and Driving Record Points

Can I use my traffic school certificate for a senior insurance discount?

Hi, I just completed my Traffic School course. I understand you will send a copy of my completion certificate to the DMV. I'm wondering about receiving a copy of the course completion to help reduce insurance costs as a California Senior. Will you send this to me? When might I expect it? Do insurance companies know that I took this course to avoid a point on my record, and will then increase my premiums (even though I don't get a point)?

Thank you. I really liked this course -- it was thorough, well thought out, easy to understand, allowed me to take breaks, and refresh my memory about things during the final test (which resulted in a score of 100% correct. Whew!)

Hello Judy-

Thank you for choosing for your traffic safety needs. The traffic school course you completed applies to eligible traffic violations issued in California. Completion of the course will help avoid having a point on your DMV driving record, so it does not affect your insurance rates. We will be submitting an electronic DMV certificate for the Mendocino County courthouse.

Unfortunately, this course does not qualify for a senior driver insurance discount. To get an insurance discount, you must complete an approved Mature Driver course which is offered by our affiliate school, American Safety Council. Upon completion, you will receive a certificate to provide to your insurance agency in order to receive your discount.

You can find more information and register for this course here:

Best Regards.
