Lowering Your Teen’s Car Insurance Costs with Driver Education

teen driver educationOut of all the drivers on the road, teens are arguably the drivers that need driver’s education the most. Their inexperience on the road is a big concern for parents and for other drivers, and rightly so; teens often don’t fully understand the dangers of getting behind the wheel, and don’t yet know all of the rules of the road.

But did you know that if your teen completes a driver’s ed course, he or she may also be eligible for a car insurance discount? It’s true: a number of major insurance companies now award teens (and other drivers, too) discounts for completing a state-approved driver’s ed course. Insurance companies want to reward responsible driving.

As an example, Liberty Mutual offers all drivers who are under the age of 21 a “Driver Training Discount” if they enroll in and complete a qualified safe driving program. Your teen can also receive car insurance discounts by getting good grades in school.

Even better, driver’s education has grown over the years, and it’s now possible to complete it from the comfort and convenience of your own home. Why try to fit even more classroom time into your teen’s busy schedule when you don’t have to? Your teen can enroll in and complete a driver’s ed course straight from your home office, and can take it at his or her own pace. Taking driver’s education courses online is a great way for your teen to not only learn the rules of the road, but to commit the rules to memory.

Online driver’s ed courses are also:

  • Extremely flexible: Your teen can complete the requirements of the course at his or her own pace and without the pressure of attending class in person.
  • Fun: Interactive elements such as video and slideshows are implemented along the way, and will encourage your teen to pay attention to the material.
  • State-approved: The material is developed by certified professional driving instructors and is approved in Ohio, Michigan, and Illinois.

In addition to all of the above benefits, your teen will learn how to drive defensively, will be prepared to obtain his or her learner’s permit, and will receive support from our qualified driving instructors.
