As every US driver knows, basic auto insurance coverage is a legal requirement for anyone operating a motor vehicle in the United States. Auto insurance plays a crucial role in protecting people from the financial costs associated with crashes; however, it can also be a frustrating expense for safe drivers that have been fortunate enough to avoid any accidents. Fortunately, there is a way for many Texas residents to lower their auto insurance premiums: Ticket School’s online Texas Driver Safety Course.
What Is The Online Texas Driver Safety Course?
The Texas Driver Safety Course, also commonly referred to as the Texas Defensive Driving course, is designed to teach course participants the fundamentals of safe driving including defensive driving techniques and the dangers associated with using drugs or alcohol while operating a motor vehicle. Additionally the course acts as a refresher on state traffic laws and other rules of the road and provides key facts about accidents and crashes. Ticket School offers this course fully online and there is no final exam.
How Can the Online Texas Driver Safety Course Lower Insurance Premiums?
Many auto insurance providers encourage their policyholders to take the Texas Driver Safety course because by learning safe driving techniques, it helps reduce their risk of future crashes and thus saves the insurance company money. As an incentive to take the course, insurance providers often offer a discount of up to 10% which typically is applied for up to three years. This makes the Texas Driver Safety course a great choice for anyone looking to lower their auto insurance costs.
How Can the Online Texas Driver Safety Course Prevent Rate Increases?
The Texas Driver Safety Course can also save consumers money by preventing auto insurance rate increases that may occur as the result of a traffic ticket. Insurance companies may raise the rates for policyholders who get traffic tickets and/or accumulate points on their driving record, but by completing the Driver Safety course many Texas drivers can get their tickets dismissed, thus preventing the mark against their driving records while also preventing the associated insurance rate increases that might occur.
How Can I Get Started with the Online Texas Driver Safety Course?
Before signing up for the Online Texas Driver Safety Course it is important to ensure that you are eligible for the benefits that you are seeking. Please check with your insurance provider to learn whether or not they offer insurance discount for completing the Driver Safety course and whether or not you are eligible for it. Likewise, not all drivers who receive traffic tickets will be eligible to have them dismissed by taking the Driver Safety course. Please check with the county clerk for the judge or court that issued your ticket to see if you are eligible.
Once you have ensured eligibility, you can signup online with Ticket School. We also offer a bundled option that includes an official certified copy of your Type 3A driving record.
