Should You Take a Safe Driving Course?

Whenever we talk about saving money on auto insurance, we mention taking a safe driving course (or defensive driving course) because, as you may have guessed or read already, a safe driving course can entitle you to discount on your auto insurance premium.

But beyond the discount it can score you–is it really worth it to take one of these classes? After all, don’t you have better things on a Saturday afternoon like playing with your kids, grocery shopping, watching college games or… sheesh, just about anything? You may be surprised to find out that a safe driving course is actually a very helpful way to spend your Saturday afternoon – whether you care about the auto insurance discount or not.

Safe driving courses help you learn how to be a safe driver. They aren’t just token classes that you sleepwalk through in order to earn your auto insurance discount; they actually reward you with real-life skills that you can take with you to keep you, your family, and other drivers safe.

During the class (which can last just a few hours or can be intensive and extend through multiple days) you will learn how to react to the unpredictable actions of other drivers, how to deal with inclement weather, what to do when the unexpected happens and how to stay calm and controlled in the face of a possible accident.

Best of all, the class increases your driving confidence. You won’t have to worry about how to react when something happens; instead, you will have the confidence and practical experience to show you that you KNOW what to do. And that kind of confidence keeps your head cool in an emergency, a benefit that can make a big difference in your level of safety.
