Want to see savings based on your years of driving experience? There's a good chance you can, with a senior citizen discount on car insurance in Newport News 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, no matter their age, level of experience, or driving history. That's why we offer senior citizen auto insurance discounts for qualifying senior drivers! Depending on your state, you might be able to pay less for helpful coverages like Medical Payments, Bodily Injury, Property Damage, Comprehensive, Collision, and Uninsured Motorist.
What can senior drivers in Newport News do to qualify? Qualifying coverages and eligibility requirements vary from state to state. Generally speaking, you might be eligible for a senior discount on car insurance if you are over 55 years old; reside in a state offering discounts on car insurance for seniors; finish an approved 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 mature driver insurance discount courses, "traffic school," or defensive driving courses. The courses are entirely online in some states. Course materials are available 24/7 and you can complete the class when it's most convenient for you. 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 more money on car insurance!
