Many drivers, however, may not fully understand how much control they have on what they pay for their auto insurance, Here are four surprising, along with one not so surprising way you can save money on your auto insurance.

Surprising Way #1 – Get Married

Yep, generally, marrieds pay less than singles when it comes to their auto insurance premiums. That’s not to say any savings are worth getting married to take advantage of, but it does mean if you have happened to have got married recently, let your insurance agent know. You may get a better rate.

Surprising Way #2 – Take a Driver’s Education Course

No, you don’t have to go back to school, but some companies offer discounts for taking an inexpensive, easy-to-complete online drivers course to refresh your defensive driving skills.
