Defensive Driving For Insurance ReductionFebruary 5, 2010 | in Defensive Driving Tips
By completing a state approved defensive driving course such as DefensiveDriving.com, you’ll not only improve your skills as a driver, you also could be eligible to save money on your insurance. Many of the leading insurance companies in the state of Texas offer various kinds of “safe driver” discounts, including discounts for completing a defensive driving course. Most of those companies offer a 10 percent discount for three years after successful completion of defensive driving.
How Much Can You Save?
Because auto insurance rates vary depending on gender, amount of coverage, marital status, zip code, and especially age, there is no meaningful “average” insurance premium cost. But it is reasonable to assume that most adult drivers under the age of 25 in Texas will pay at least $1000 a year for minimum coverage. That means the average person would save $100 for taking a defensive driving course, $300 for three years.
Now imagine you pay more, much more, as some drivers do. The chart below shows potential savings:
