Can You Benefit From Taking an Online Defensive Driving Course?

Can You Benefit From Taking an Online Defensive Driving Course?

Just about anything can be done online today. We can even get groceries and full dinners delivered to our front door. You can get a college degree and even buy a home. It shouldn’t surprise anyone then, that there are online driving schools. These “traffic schools” are relatively inexpensive to take and many even guarantee results. There are a lot of advantages to an online course as opposed to an in-person course, but what are some of the specific advantages?

We can all probably use a reminder that driving up inches away from the driver who pulled out in front of us is not a good idea. Perhaps, it’s not best of practices to speed up to prevent someone from passing you on the right. It may also be a good reminder to note that a stop sign is not just a suggestion. But other than serve as a refresher, do these online driving courses offer value?

If you’ve received a traffic citation or are concerned about accumulating points on your driving record, an online driving school can absolutely be worth the costs and effort. Many states will “forgive” a traffic ticket if the offender takes a defensive driving course, making it well worth while. Some insurance companies will even offer discounts to anyone who has completed a defensive driving course. There may also be benefits to older drivers who may have forgotten some of the rules of the road.

Other benefits of taking an online driving course is they can be taken at your convenience at your own pace from any online connected device. Perhaps though, the biggest benefit is getting that reminder that driving rules do matter and we should all look out for the other guy.

Good drivers usually reap the rewards of their efforts through lower insurance rates. If you want to make sure you get the best value for your auto insurance dollar, contact our independent insurance agents. We can search multiple companies to shop for quality coverage at the best possible price. Are you overpaying? Would you know if you were? Contact us for the assurance you deserve.
