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

Very young drivers also have higher crash rates. But at Direct Auto & Life, we're always on the hunt for ways to help drivers save money, whatever their driving history, age, or time spent behind the wheel. That's why we offer senior citizen auto insurance discounts for eligible older drivers! Depending on your state, you might be able to pay less for helpful coverages like Collision, Comprehensive, Medical Payments, Uninsured Motorist, Property Damage, and Bodily Injury.
What can senior drivers in Athens do to qualify? Qualifying coverages and eligibility requirements vary from state to state. Generally speaking, you may be eligible for a senior discount on car insurance if you're 55 years old or older; live in a state where discounts on car insurance for seniors are offered; finish an approved Motor Vehicle Accident Prevention course; and supply a copy of the certificate saying that you've successfully done so. You may also hear these class referred to as mature driver insurance discount courses, "traffic school," or defensive driving courses. In some states, the course is entirely online. Course materials are posted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and you can study and complete the course whenever it's convenient for you. In other states, such courses have both a classroom and driving component.
