Being a safe driver is about more than using your blinker and looking twice at the intersection. It's about preparing for surprising moves other drivers might make, changing your driving to fit the weather and road conditions, and even reducing distractions inside your car. It's a state of mind, a style of driving, and one of the most important things you can practice! At Direct Auto Insurance, we know safe driving isn't the easiest thing to practice day in and day out. That's why we like to honor safe driving with safe driver car insurance discounts in Portsmouth!
How can you qualify for a safe driver auto insurance discount? It's simple! First, however, you must live in a state where safe driving insurance discounts are available. They're not offered in every state. Then, be realistic about your driving history. Have you been violation- and accident-free for the last 36 months? If so, there's a chance you could save as much as 10% on your car insurance with Direct Auto in Portsmouth. Note that the amount of time you must remain accident- and violation-free is different in every state. It may be a year or more, so it's best to give us a call if you're unsure about the requirements in Virginia. Our qualified agents can help you find every single car insurance discount you qualify for, even if a safe driver discount isn't one of them.
Some insurance companies mandate that you finish a driver's education defensive driving class in order to qualify for a safe driving 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're curious about your eligibility for a safe driver discount in Portsmouth or want to learn more about car insurance in Virginia, 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!
