Safe driving is about more than using your blinker and looking twice at the intersection. It's about preparing for surprising moves other drivers might make, changing your driving to fit the weather and road conditions, and even taking action to cut the number of distractions inside your car. It's a state of mind, a style of driving, and one of the most important things you can practice! At Direct Auto & Life Insurance, we know safe driving isn't the easiest thing to practice day in and day out. That's one reason we like to reward eligible safe drivers with safe driver auto insurance discounts in Columbia!
How do you qualify for a safe driver discount on car insurance? It's simple! First, you need to live in a state that offers safe driving car insurance discounts. Not every state does. Then, take a look at your driving record. Have you gone 36 months without a violation or accident? If so, you may be able to save up to 10% on your auto insurance with Direct Auto & Life in Columbia. Remember that the amount of time you must remain accident- and violation-free varies by state. It could be more than 12 months, so it's best to call if you aren't 100% sure about the rules in South Carolina. Our qualified agents can help you find every single car insurance discount you qualify for, even if a safe driver discount isn't one of them.
Some insurance companies require that you take a driver's education or defensive driving course in order to qualify for a safe driver discount. Others request that you install certain technology in your car that collects data on your driving habits and reports back to the insurance company. At Direct Auto & Life, we don't require any of these things. You could still qualify for a safe driver discount without installing any technology or completing a defensive driving class.
