Safe driving is about more than checking your mirrors and going the speed limit. It's about preparing for surprising moves other drivers might make, adjusting your driving based on the weather and road conditions, and even limiting the distractions inside your vehicle. It's a state of mind just as much as it is a style of driving. At Direct Auto & Life Insurance, we know safe driving doesn't always come easy. That's why we do our best to reward safe drivers with safe driver car insurance discounts in Summerville!
What do you need to do to be eligible for a safe driving car insurance discount? It’s pretty easy! First, you need to live in a state that offers safe driving car insurance discounts. Not every state does. Then, be realistic about your driving history. Is your record free of violations and accidents for the last 36 months? If so, you may be able to save up to 10% on your auto insurance with Direct Auto & Life in Summerville. Remember that the timeframe you must remain without violations or accidents varies from state to state. It could be 12 months or more, so it's best to give us a call if you're unsure about the requirements in South Carolina. Our knowledgeable agents will help you find all of the insurance discounts you're entitled to, even if a safe driver discount isn’t one of them.
Some car 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. If you have questions about your eligibility for a safe driver discount in Summerville or want to know more about South Carolina auto insurance requirements, talk to one of our representatives at 1-877-GO-DIRECT (1-877-463-4732) or visit a Direct Auto & Life location near you today!
