Driving is a privilege, not a right, and it is an enormous responsibility. You’re being trusted to drive thousands of pounds of metal and glass around at high speeds, and unless you can demonstrate your ability to do that safely, the privilege will not be extended to you.
Because your ability to drive safely can directly impact those around you, states require that you pass certain tests indicating you know how to adhere to rules and regulations associated with road safety. Failure to drive safely can result in a number of consequences, including:
  • Tickets
  • Fines
  • License suspension
  • License revocation
As a driver, one of the things you’re expected to do in almost every state is carry minimum car insurance coverage. Let Jerry help you by making sure you have coverage customized just for you at a rate you can actually afford.
