Benefits and Cost Savings by Taking Idaho Point Reduction

Many people automatically think that it isn’t worth their time to take an online points reduction course, but what they might not realize is how much it can actually save them. Let’s take a look at an example to better understand the savings involved. Meet Julie. Julie lives in Idaho is just got a speeding ticket that added 3 points to her driving record. As a result, Julie’s car insurance policy increased from $100 monthly to $125 monthly, or a 25% increase. The points will stay on Julie’s record for 5 years so that means because of just one ticket Julie will spend an extra $1500 on car insurance. However if Julie takes the point reduction course, which only costs $32, she can remove those 3 points and get her insurance rate back down to $100 monthly.

But I don’t have a ticket, can Idaho points reduction still save me money? Definitely. Meet Sam. Sam pays $100 monthly for his car insurance premiums. He has a clean driving record but wants to save money on his insurance costs. Sam called his insurance company and found out they offer a 15% discount to anyone who takes the course since it will make them a better driver. That means that Sam’s rates will drop down to $85 monthly, saving him $180 annually. Over 5 years that equals a savings of $900. And the course only cost him $32 and could be taken from the comfort of his own home.
