Want to see savings based on your years of driving experience? There's a chance you can, with a senior citizen auto insurance discount from Gulfport's Direct Auto & Life Insurance. The harsh truth is that older drivers can sometimes pay more for car insurance. One reason is because senior drivers have been shown to have higher car crash rates than middle-aged drivers. Very young drivers also have higher crash rates. But at Direct Auto & Life, we're always on the hunt for ways to help drivers save money, whatever their driving history, age, or time spent behind the wheel. That's why we have senior citizen car insurance discounts for qualifying senior drivers! Depending on where you live, you could pay less for beneficial coverages like Medical Payments, Bodily Injury, Property Damage, Comprehensive, Collision, and Uninsured Motorist.
What can senior drivers in Gulfport do to qualify? Qualifying coverages and eligibility requirements vary from state to state. In general, you may be eligible for a senior auto insurance discount if you're 55 years old or older; live in a state where senior car insurance discounts are available; finish an approved Motor Vehicle Accident Prevention course; and provide a copy of the certificate indicating that you've successfully completed the course. These courses can also be referred to as mature driver insurance discount courses, "traffic school," or defensive driving courses. In some states, the course is entirely online. Course materials are available 24/7 and you can study and finish the class on your own timeframe. Other states require there to be a classroom and driving component. In both cases, these valuable sessions help drivers over 55 stay in-tune with new defensive driving techniques and save more money on car insurance!
