Today, I called Hartford, my auto insurance company, informed them that I had just taken this course, and the nice lady on the line, after a few seconds of checking, said that I would save $327 during the upcoming three year period, including a check in the mail by August to reimburse me for this year. This was for $12 and a four hour discussion session, while being serenaded by the Royal Hawaiian Band. Most importantly of all, I am now a better driver.
