Driving in New York City isn’t the most appealing thought. In fact, it can be downright intimidating. This raises the question, “Why bother with the traffic, tolls, random construction, and dodging overzealous pedestrians when you have access to one of the best public transportation systems around?” Because sometimes you need a car.
Since New Yorkers have multiple options when it comes to their daily commutes, many tend to let their licenses expire. Some don’t even learn to drive at all. But having a valid license and knowing how to drive is a necessity as you never know when you may need it. (Like that time your movers flaked and you had to haul your clothing across town in three taxis.)
Even if you have a license and own a car, however, there’s another issue you have to deal with – insurance costs. On average, New Yorkers pay $1,173 every year for auto insurance. Fortunately, New York Driver offers a course for only $29.95, which gives people a guaranteed ten percent insurance discount upon completion, allowing them to save an average of $352 over a three-year period. After the three years are over, drivers can retake the course and renew their discount.
The New York Driver course couldn’t be any easier. Not only does everyone pass (there’s no final exam), but it doesn’t have to be completed in one sitting. Comprised of a mix of audio and reading, you can work on it at your leisure, whether you’re at home or hanging out at a local café. Once you’ve finished, New York Driver mails you a certificate of completion to show your insurance providers, and also registers the course completion with the DMV.
Car insurance companies increase their prices annually – so taking the New York Driver course is a great way to save money at any time of year. With this discount only available in a select few states, it’s a benefit that New Yorkers, specifically, can use to their advantage.
New York Driver is offering Tracy’s New York Life readers a discounted price of $24.95 with the promo code: BLOG14.
