Being a safe driver is about more than using your blinker and looking twice at the intersection. It's about watching other driver's actions, 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! Here at Direct Auto Insurance, we understand how tough safe driving can be sometimes. That's one reason we like to reward eligible safe drivers with safe driver car insurance discounts in Columbus!
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 could be saving up to 10% on your car insurance with Direct Auto in Columbus. Note that the period of time you must remain violation- and accident-free varies from state to state. It could be 12 months or more, so it's best to call if you aren't 100% sure about the rules in Georgia. Our friendly 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 mandate that you complete a defensive driving or driver's education class in order to get 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, 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 Columbus or want to learn more about car insurance in Georgia, call one of our agents at 1-877-GO-DIRECT (1-877-463-4732) or stop by a Direct Auto location in your neighborhood today!
