I was trying to lower my rate by applying two discounts to my policy. The good student discount and the discount for attending driving school. However, they will not allow me to use the discounts because "they do not allow the named insured" to apply discounts. I am the only one on the policy and making the payments. So, I was curious to know if this is only a thing with Progressive or all car insurance places? I tried looking online for information about it but found nothing. It seems pretty stupid to not allow someone to use a discount just because they are the named insured.
