I got the saving fever. Two back to back posts on savings from me. Now that’s a first. This quick one is about how to save on car insurance (again I guess).
No, not again a GEICO commercial. I heard that you can save approximately $200 a year on car insurance if you are 55 years of age or older if you take a senior driving education class.
Insurance companies offer various discounts for safety features. Safety features not only include the alarm and airbag on a car, but also the driving record and knowledge of the driver. For that reason, many insurance companies have been giving discounts to drivers 55 yrs old or above who pass a brief driver safety education program.
The course is only 8 hours long and doesn’t cost much to take. There are shorter classes available at 4 hours each. These can be taken online as well. If you are going to save $200 a year ($1,000 in 5 years), then paying the small course fee is like giving away candy. It is a no brainer.
If you want to know more or verify this information, I suggest you contact your insurance agency. You can also run a simple search on Google for “senior driver’s education”.
DiversEd offers excellent courses at a great price. Check them out here. Taking the course today will save you hundreds in the coming months.
You may not be 55 years old (young), but I am sure you know a few? Maybe a parent? A neighbor? Someone at work?
Forward them this post. I am sure they will appreciate the quick read and more so the $200 they will be saving every year. Hey $200 is a lot of wine bottles!
