It’s common for auto insurance companies to provide a discount on auto insurance for customers to complete a certified training course. How much you pay in auto insurance premium is determined by a lot of factors, and one of those factors is the perceived risk a driver may bring. Driver courses teach drivers of all ages, including youthful drivers, how to be better, which may lower the risk of an accident. The more you learn, the more you can save on car insurance! At Alfa®, we offer the following discounts for completing driver courses.
