Defensive Driving Course

Last week I received an email from my insurance agent suggesting I take a defensive driving course.  I took it about 4 years ago but found it must be repeated after 3 years.  Upon completion my insurance rate can be decreased by 10%.  Fortunately, it can be taken online, which takes about 6 hours to complete.  Pre-internet days, one would have to go to an office and sit through the course for 6 hours.  Some of the topics are:

  • Driver Attitude
  • Defensive Driving
  • Signs, Signals, and Road Markings
  • Right of Way
  • Stopping Distance
Most of what is covered is common sense, but it is worth the decrease in my auto insurance.  I could understand that it should be required by new drivers, but experienced drivers know what is covered.
