    being under 25 and married, you’d pay less than a 25 year old, age discrimination doesn’t come into effect until you’re over 40 discrimination based on race is illegal Most states offer a 10% discount for 3 years on your policy if you pass a defensive driving course, my hubby and I each took a comedy defensive driving class last year ($ 30 each) and we save about $ 150 a year on our premiums
