Car Insurance Discounts With Pass Plus
When you complete your driving examination and buy your first vehicle the world truly opens up for you. However car insurance for young drivers does not come cheaply – unfortunately you get penalized because statistics show that new motorists are far more likely to get into an accident.
However you can save a significant discount on the cost of your premiums with most car insurance companies by taking the Pass Plus advanced driving course which is available around the UK. No doubt the last thing you probably want to do at this point is take more driving courses however the amount of money that you save will make it all worth it.
The Pass Plus course is designed is to improve the driving skills of newly qualified drivers and will teach you to be a safe driver which makes the car insurance willing to give you a better deal. Although anyone can take the Plus Pass course it is best to do it as soon after getting your license as possible before you pick up bad habits.
The cost of the course varies depending on the part of the country that you live in and who is your instructor but it is generally between about AÃ¯Â¿Â½100 and AÃ¯Â¿Â½150. Also check with your local authorities as sometimes they will pay up to half of your fees depending on where you live. The course covers driving in different common environments such as driving in cities and towns, extreme weather conditions, driving at night or on dual carriageways or motorways. These skills will for the most part be taught in a practical setting rather than just learning the theories behind them.
Not all car insurance providers will give you a discount for the Pass Plus course so be sure to check and see that you will be saving yourself money from your efforts. Others will only allow you to get the discount if you pass the course within a year of passing your original driving test. You can get a discount of up to 35% with some companies while others you may only get 5%.
Of course, despite the savings on your car insurance the real value of the Pass Plus course is that you will learn some excellent driving skills which will not only save you money but could possibly save your life on day!
And one final tip for ensuring you get the best car insurance premium is to spend a few hours searching online using different car insurance comparison sites. Not all comparison sites show the same quotes, and you will be surprised as to the range of pricing you can find.
