Benefits of Taking a Defensive Driving Course
You may have noticed that many current auto insurance applications ask whether or not the applicant has recently completed a motor vehicle commission sanctioned driving class. While these were originally conducted as a way for drivers with severely bad records or senior citizens to refresh their driving skills, they have now become a regular thing that anyone can attend at any time. Here are a few reasons why you should consider taking a course, if you haven't already!
Vehicle-specific Discounts - most insurers lower rates for these features, which may or may not be part of your car.
- Safety First! The most important reason to refresh your driving skills is your safety - and the safety of everyone on the road with you.
- Brush Up! When we first get our learner's permit and begin driving, everything we learned in driver's education is fresh in our minds. Taking a class as an adult can remind you of important road rules.
- Valuable Discounts! Everyone likes saving money on car insurance, and passing a defensive driving class can help you to do just that.
Adult driver's education courses are usually very affordable, and they are available in a variety of convenient locations. County libraries often play host to the sessions, which are typically sponsored by organizations like AAA and AARP. Get out there and try a class - you might just find that your driving is improved and your insurance rates are lowered!
