Are Online Senior Driving Tests Official?

As of 2015, there are no states that offer a complete driver's license test online for seniors or any other age group; however, some organizations offer online senior driver safety courses that can earn students discounts on insurance and other benefits. Additionally, some states allow online license renewal for seniors.

AARP is one of several organizations that offer online senior driving safety courses. AARP members are not required to take the course, but the organization encourages participation and advises prospective participants to ask their insurance companies if they offer discounts for completing the classes.

Many states offer online driver's license renewal; however, states such as California, Louisiana and Texas, place restrictions on it after drivers reach certain ages. For example, California drivers cannot renew online after age 70, and they must take in-person eye exams periodically.
