How much can taking a defensive driving course save you on your car insurance?

I'm considering taking a driver training or defensive driving course. How much would I save on my insurance?

“Good on you for thinking about taking a driver training course! The discount that car insurance companies offer for driving training or defensive driving programs will vary.
One company that offers a defensive driving discount is State Farm. You can save 10% to 15% off your policy when you take a qualifying course. Other companies may offer more or less depending on how they rate policies.
To determine what you may save by taking a course, you can request car insurance quotes. You should have the option to select a defensive driving course discount.
If not, you can reach out to an agent to confirm what the savings may be. As insurance rates depend on your situation, you won’t know what you can save without getting quotes first.
Should you want help finding affordable rates and discounts, try using the Jerry app. A licensed broker that offers end-to-end support, the Jerry app gathers affordable quotes, helps you switch plans, and will even help you cancel your old policy. And the best part–Jerry does this for free.”
