Drivers' Education & Insurance Rates

Thursday, January 12, 2012

Drivers education is a great way to train drivers on defensive driving skills and awareness of the rules of the road. But will taking a driver’s education class lower your insurance rates?

First we need to keep in mind that there are many factors involved in deciding a car insurance premium, age, gender, make and model of car are among other factors involved in the decision. That being said, many car insurance companies look favorably on drivers who have enrolled in driving school or other driving programs. If you are looking to lower your rates, driving school may help.

Beyond the potential savings, driver’s education is a smart idea for anyone. It never hurts to be too educated when getting behind the wheel of a car. Whether a brand new driver, or someone looking to upgrade their skills, drivers education is a smart choice.
