(c)The percentage of premium reduction required by subdivision (a) shall be reassessed by the insurer upon renewal of the insured’s policy. The insured’s eligibility for any percentage of premium reduction shall be effective for a three-year period from the date of successful completion of the course described in subdivision (a), except that the insurer may discontinue the reduced premium rate if the insured is in any case:
(1)Involved in an accident for which the insured is at fault, as determined by the insurer.
(2)Convicted of a violation of Division 11 (commencing with Section 21000) of the Vehicle Code, except Chapter 9 (commencing with Section 22500) of that division, or of a traffic related offense involving alcohol or narcotics.
(d)The percentage of premium rate reduction required by subdivision (a) does not apply in the event the insured enrolls in, and successfully completes, an approved course pursuant to a court order provided for in Section 42005 of the Vehicle Code. Nothing in this subdivision precludes an insured from also enrolling in a driver improvement course.
