Safe Drivers Smart Options is an award winning website.

In 2018 the Safe Drivers Smart Options initiative was recognized with an Outstanding Traffic Safety Achievement Award by the GTSAC.

The purpose of the Governor's Traffic Safety Advisory Commission (GTSAC) is to provide leadership in the identification of state and local traffic safety issues and promote recommended strategies to address them. The GTSAC awards program recognizes honorees with an Outstanding Traffic Safety Achievement Award. The award celebrates the accomplishments of individuals and agencies whose dedication, energy, and commitment to traffic safety have made a difference for Michigan residents. Safe Drivers Smart Options was honored for helping aging adult drivers. It is an evidence-based initiative that helps older adults continue to drive safely and assist those needing to make a transition to driving retirement while maintaining mobility and independence.

Safe Drivers Smart Options received three awards in 2017 from the AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF MOTOR VEHICLE ADMINISTRATORS (AAMVA) whose awards program fosters a tradition of excellence in the motor vehicle and law enforcement community by honoring individuals, teams, and organizations who have committed their time and resources to safety initiatives, outstanding customer service, and public affairs and consumer education programs throughout North America.
