Representatives from California’s Department of Insurance and notebook computer maker ASUS Computer International have been visiting community colleges to introduce students to the state’s California Low Cost Automobile Insurance Program (CLCA).
In today’s economy, all Californians – especially students – are looking to save money. The CLCA program provides affordable liability-only auto insurance that meets the state’s financial responsibility laws for less than $400 a year.
“The CLCA is a great resource for many Californians, but it can be especially helpful for college students,” said Deputy Commissioner Chris Shultz. “For as little as $26 a month, students can get liability insurance through the CLCA program – satisfying California’s insurance requirements.”
The CDI said it recognizes that many students shop for bargains online, which is why it and ASUS representatives recently visited American River College in Sacramento to introduce the CLCA program and demonstrate the ease of applying to the program online.
The American River College visit was the second in the Insurance Department’s series of ollege events, with a third to follow next month at a community college in San Diego.
“Every day, more than a million uninsured drivers hit the roads in California,” Shultz said. “The bottom line is that driving without insurance is illegal. The California Department of Insurance encourages all Californians to find out if they qualify.”
Note: This coverage is very basic and does not provide comprehensive or collision protection.
