June 29th, 2015 No Comments

Lower Auto Insurance Defensive Driving Course NJ

1. Take a defensive driving course. Many auto insurance companies will offer discounts to drivers who have successfully completed a Defensive driving course at an accredited driving school.

2. Vehicle’s with car safety and security features. Driving a car that has a number of built-in safety features, such as airbags and anti-lock brakes, and security features, like anti-theft and engine cut-off systems, may qualify you for additional discounts on your auto insurance premiums. This is because statistically vehicles with these features are less likely to be in an accident or stolen than those that don’t have them.

3. Check to see if a higher deductibles is right for you. The higher your deductible (the amount of money you are willing to pay in the event of a claim) the lower your premium generally is. Typically, deductibles range from $0 to $1,500. You should check with your insurance agent to see if this is the right way for you to lower your premiums.

4. Park it in the garage. Many insurance companies offer discounts to people who park their cars inside a garage. Statistics show that vehicles in garages are less likely to be stolen or in accidents.

5. Shop and compare car insurance quotes. Be sure to get several auto insurance quotes when shopping around, then compare them side by side to pick the one that’s best for your situation.

Most of the Act pertains to Veterans health care but it also included two provisions affecting GI Bill® benefits. This note pertains to the Fry Scholarship; my next note will talk about in-state tuition.

7 Reasons Private Driving Lessons are Better

April 10th, 2014 No Comments

Private Driving Lessons

    1. Save money on insurance payments. Don’t think that you are saving money if you don’t send your children to driving school. What you pay for the school will be returned to you many times over by lower insurance premium. Depending on insurance company, your new driver can save 5 to 15% on insurance rates during his/her lifetime.
  1. Save time. With today’s hurried and harried pace, do you really want one more chore to do? Taking your kids out driving need not be added to your list. The experienced driving instructors at EZ Wheels Driving School are more than happy to relieve you of that burden.
  2. Less stress. Save wear and tear on your nerves (fingernails too) by allowing a certified driving instructor to teach your children. How long will it take you to recover your composure if your son or daughter almost hits a building, other car or worse yet, a person?
  3. Better driving education. Yes, I know you are a great driver with no points on your record for years. You know what you are doing. However, the driving instructor does this for a living and has acquired expertise. He/she knows what issues new drivers face and can readily and easily address these.
  4. Save wear and tear on your vehicle. Do you really want to put your vehicle through the stress grinding gears and slamming on the brakes? New drivers often handle the shift roughly and go from drive to park before the car has even stopped.
  5. Safer learning experience. The driving instructor has a vehicle with dual controls. HE/SHE can apply the brakes if needed.
  6. Your child will feel less stressed with a stranger, than with you. Your tension will be felt by your child. Moreover, your child will be trying to impress you causing him/her to not pay as close attention to learning as he/she otherwise would.
