The thought of getting back into the classroom may seem like a dreaded task, especially for those of us who haven't gone to school in years, but thankfully this classroom doesn't involve cafeteria lunches or detention and in some cases can be completed online.
In many states, discounts or rate deductions on car insurance are not only offered but mandatory for drivers who have completed a driver safety course, some of these courses involve getting back into the classroom but some are even available online.
Of course, the training must be state-approved driver improvement courses, but taking them once can lead to discounts that last for years. The discounts will vary by the driver's age, record and other factors so it's important to know which states and which insurance companies offer the discounts to ensure eligibility.
The 35 states that give mandatory discounts include:
- the District of Columbia
- New Jersey
- New Mexico
- New York
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
For those drivers who only have time to complete a course online, there are 23 states that insurance companies are required to make discounts available even if the state-approved course is completed online including: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, the District of Columbia, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia and Wyoming.
