Am I eligible for this course?
Any student who lives in Minnesota, is at least 55 years old, and has a valid license is eligible to take the DPS approved Accident Prevention Course. If you’ve already taken and passed the Minnesota Accident Prevention Mature Driver 8 Hour Course, you are now eligible to take our Accident Prevention 4 Hour Refresher Course.
***You must have a Minnesota Driver License to take this Class***
What is an Accident Prevention class?
Accident Prevention classes are designed to help teach and reiterate the rules of the road so you can be better prepared for the unexpected. They will teach a variety of helpful techniques to help become a safer driver. You can also benefit by taking a defensive driving class to hold a 3-point credit on your driving record, and/or could earn a discount with your auto insurance.
We offer the initial basic accident prevention course, and we also offer the follow up refresher course to continue with your education so you can continue to earn benefits and stay up to date with your driving skills.
Which class is right for me?
The Minnesota Accident Prevention Mature Driver 8 Hour Course is for any licensed driver who is 55 or older and taking the course for the first time. The Minnesota Accident Prevention Mature Driver 4 Hour Refresher Course is for those who are continuing their defensive driving education and/or benefits after three years. Once the initial Basic Defensive Driving Course has been completed, students can wait 3 years before taking the Refresher course to continue with their education and/or benefits.
