Government scheme could cut car insurance costs

The government is mulling plans which could see motorists benefit from cheaper car insurance through signing up for courses to improve their skills behind the wheel. Under the terms of the new plan, those who take advanced driving courses could cut the cost of insuring their car by around 25 per cent. However, young drivers will benefit from even marked reductions, with the Telegraph claiming that those who complete courses will see their bill cut by as much as £500 from its current average of £2,000. An unnamed source from the Department for Transport source told the newspaper: "We want people to go on improving their driving skills throughout their driving careers. "This is about creating the right sort of education and incentivising people to do it."The courses are set to be devised by the Driving Standards Agency, which also oversee their implementation. Areas covered by the tuition are set to include motorway driving and emergency braking at high speed.
