There’s many different discounts you can get with your auto insurance – some you may never even knew about. One of the most well known discounts is the Good Driver discount – and all preferred insurance carriers offer it to their customers. The more drivers you have on your policy who are considered “good drivers”, the more money you save a year… and the savings can be big.
Insurance carriers criteria may differ on what constitutes you being a Good Driver, like how many years you’ve gone without an accident/violation.
However, there are some similarities across the board with all carriers such as: going at least three years without an accident, taking a defensive driving course, going at least three years without a traffic violation, and completing a driver training course. The more drivers your have on your policy that fall under these categories, the more the discounts add up.
Always follow the rules of the road. If you’re being negligent, you can expect to get a violation sooner than later, and that means you lose your Good Driver discount. Otherwise, If you’re following the rules of the road, no need to worry about traffic violations.
