(a) Any rates, rating schedules, or rating manuals for the liability, personal injury protection, and collision coverages of a motor vehicle insurance policy submitted to or filed with the insurance commissioner shall provide for an appropriate reduction in premium charges as to such coverages for a three-year period after the principal operator of the covered vehicle successfully completes a motor vehicle accident prevention course approved by the national safety council or a governmental agency such as the state board of education. The rates, rating schedule or rating manuals required by subsection (a) shall be submitted to or filed with the commissioner of insurance at the time of the next regular filing with the commissioner after the effective date of this act.

(c) Upon successfully completing the approved course, each person shall be issued a certificate by the organization offering the course which shall be used to qualify for the premium discount required by this section.

(d) This section shall not apply in the event the approved course is specified by an administrative order of the director of vehicles or by a court order as a result of a moving traffic violation.

(e) Each participant shall take an approved course every three years to continue to be eligible for the reduction in premiums.
