  • Your full name as it appears on your state issued Driver License/Permit
  • The license number as it appears on your state issued Driver License/Permit
  • The license date of issue as it appears on your state issued Driver License/Permit

The BASIC Certification course is presented in three (3) lessons.

After your driver license information is confirmed with the Delaware Division of Motor Vehicles, a Course Completion Certificate will be sent to you as an email attachment.


You may then download, print and present your certificate to your motor vehicle insurance provider to gain any available discounts for completion of a BASIC defensive driving course.

In Delaware, state law (opens in a new tab) mandates a minimum 10% discount for drivers completing state-certified courses, including SmartDrive U.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO NON-DELAWARE LICENSE HOLDERS: Students holding driver licenses from states other than Delaware will be issued a course completion certificate – however no reporting will be made to your issuing state driver records agency.  Many insurance companies accept the certificate as proof of having completed a BASIC defensive driving course.  Please check with your insurer for their acceptance.
