Does a defensive driving course lower your car insurance rates?
My car insurance company currently offers defensive driving courses for free. If I take the course, will it lower my car insurance rates?
“Defensive driving courses, such as one offered by the Smith System Driver Improvement Institute, can make you a better driver.
The good news is many companies will also lower your car insurance premiums after you take the course. Not only will you be an improved, more confident driver, but you’ll also put some extra money in your pocket.”

Do I need to buy the rental company's insurance if I don't have my own car insurance?
I don't own a car currently, so I don't have car insurance. I know that my credit card has a collision damage waiver. Is this enough coverage or should I take out more?
