Driver’s Ed Isn’t Just Kids’ Stuff

by | Feb 10, 2012

When you think of driver’s education, do you remember sitting in a school desk watching videos of car crashes and listening to the teacher talk endlessly about brake fluid? Believe it or not, driver’s ed can be extremely useful—and keep you safe on the road. In fact, we think driver’s ed is so important that taking a class can save you money. And not just for new drivers, either.

It’s good to get a refresher course sometimes, and that’s why in many places, drivers over the age of 55 can get a break on their premiums when they take an accident prevention course. It never hurts to brush the old skill set off, and you might even learn a thing or two – while keeping some cash in your pocket.

If you’re the parent of a new driver, we strongly recommend enrolling them in a driver’s education program. Not only will it give them a better understanding of the rules of the road and keep them safe on the streets, you can also save money on their policy. It’s a win-win for everyone.

So don’t be afraid to step back into the classroom, no matter what your age, and learn some new driving skills. You might be surprised at what you learn—and at what you can buy with your savings! Call us today to learn how Erie Insurance is committed to saving you money and keeping you safe.
