Ready to get rewarded for years of experience behind the wheel? Now you probably can, with a senior citizen discount on car insurance in Austin from Direct Auto & Life Insurance.

That's why we have senior citizen car insurance discounts for eligible older drivers! Depending on the state you reside in, you could save big on important coverages like Medical Payments, Bodily Injury, Property Damage, Comprehensive, Collision, and Uninsured Motorist.
What does it take to qualify as a senior driver in Austin? Qualifying coverages and eligibility requirements vary from state to state. Generally speaking, you may be eligible for a senior auto insurance discount if you are over 55 years old; live in a state where senior car insurance discounts are available; complete and pass an authorized Motor Vehicle Accident Prevention course; and provide a copy of the certificate indicating that you've successfully completed the course. These classes are sometimes referred to as "traffic school," defensive driving courses, or mature driver insurance discount courses. Some states offer the courses entirely online. Course materials are available 24/7 and you can study and complete the course whenever it's convenient for you. Other states require there to be a classroom and driving component. Either way, these important sessions help drivers over 55 stay current on the latest defensive driving techniques and save more money on car insurance!
