Ready to get rewarded for years of experience behind the wheel? There's a chance you can, with a car insurance discount for seniors in Athens from Direct Auto & Life Insurance. The harsh truth is that drivers over a certain age can often end up paying more for their 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. Here at Direct Auto & Life, we're always looking for new ways to help drivers save their hard-earned money, whatever their driving history, age, or time spent behind the wheel. That's a big reason why we offer a senior citizen insurance discount for eligible older drivers! Depending on your state, you could pay less for beneficial coverages like Medical Payments, Bodily Injury, Property Damage, Comprehensive, Collision, and Uninsured Motorist.
What can senior drivers in Athens do to qualify? Eligibility requirements and qualifying coverages are different in every state. Generally speaking, you may be eligible for a senior citizen car insurance discount if you are over 55 years old; live in a state where senior car insurance discounts are available; successfully complete an approved Motor Vehicle Accident Prevention course; and supply a copy of the certificate saying that you've successfully done so. These courses can also be referred to as "traffic school," defensive driving courses, or mature driver insurance discount courses. In some states, the course is entirely online. Materials are available any day or time and you can study and finish the class on your own timeframe. Other states require there to be a classroom and driving component. Regardless, both types of sessions help drivers over 55 stay up-to-date on new defensive driving practices and save money on auto insurance!
