New York, NY (PRWEB) July 26, 2012
InsuranceQuotesUSA.com, part of the Insurance Quotes USA Finance network, is an all-in-one stop for news, tips, and quotes on car insurance and many other types of insurance coverage. The company reveals the exact steps drivers need to take for an additional 10% discount on car insurance - by completing a defensive driving course, online or offline. "Although consumers may be aware of how defensive driving classes can help them save more on car insurance, they may not be aware of the steps they need to follow and the precautions they need to take," said Eric, Senior Advisor of InsuranceQuotesUSA.com. "There are many fraudulent websites online that offer fake courses."
Step 1. Find an Eligible Course - Online or Offline
In order to be eligible for discounts, the course must be sanctioned by the local residential state of the driver. Do not believe in any claim by the course outline or description. "We recommend you to, before enrolling, confirm with your state Department of Motor Vehicles on the eligibility of the course and its provider," said Eric. "If you are not sure who to contact, you can find your local state DMV online at dmvnv.com/50_state_dmv_list.html"
Step 2. Confirm the Eligibility of the Course with the Insurance Companies
Not all insurance companies offer such discounts. Most of the companies do but many of them have specific requirements and a list of accepted courses. "Your insurance provider will be able to tell you which courses will give you a discount," said Eric.
Step 3. Initiate Telephone Contact with the Course Provider Prior Taking the Course
Most fraudulent websites will not provide a phone number to avoid possible traces in the event of a legal issue. Contact the course provider over the phone before enrolling in the course is also necessary for support in the future if required.
Step 4. Confirm with the Course Provider of an Official Certificate of Completion
Make sure that upon the completion of the course, an official certificate of completion will be provided.
When an individual completes a defensive driving course that is certified by the local state department of motor vehicles, in addition to a certificate of completion, the information will be sent to the local state DMV and will be entered and saved into the driving history of the individual. "We recommend that you get a copy of your driving record from your local state DMV upon the completion of the course," Eric added.
In addition to the tips above, InsuranceQuotesUSA.com also recommends consumers to buy and install a black box recorder to save even more on car insurance.
InsuranceQuotesUSA.com offers a fast, secure, and easy to use platform which allows consumers to compare quotes from multiple companies at the same time. "Consumers can compare and save more than $800 on car insurance with us," Eric continued. "We had one individual who managed to save over $828 on a new policy with similar coverage."
