New value-added services from our Auto Aftermarket team provide a competitive edge


Arrowhead’s Automotive Aftermarket team is constantly looking for ways to enhance their program. They’ve recently added two services that will help producers close deals more easily: free defensive driving online classes for employees and an easier way to recruit new technicians. Both Auto Aftermarket value-added services will aid your insureds in their businesses – and help you create new accounts.


Easy defensive driving training by 1moresecond®

Now your clients can curb employee vehicle accidents with free online defensive driver training. They can use the course as orientation training for new hires or refresher training for experienced drivers. They can also target training for their high-risk drivers.

Your clients’ employees will appreciate a fast-paced, two-hour training with full-motion video hazard exercises and eight interactive modules. This isn’t your typical “watch a slideshow and answer questions” like most defensive driving classes. Plus, eDriving (the creator of 1moresecond®) handles all the tracking and reports. You’ll find it easy to see who’s completed the course and who hasn’t.

The course is designed to increase driver awareness and help combat aggressive or distracted driving, which has reached unprecedented levels:

  • Nearly 80% of drivers reported that they have experienced anger, aggression and even road rage while driving. (AAAFTS)
  • Every day in the U.S. alone, over 8 people are killed and 1,161 injured in crashes that involve a distracted driver. (NCSA)
  • Just adding one more second to your standard following distance can reduce the likelihood of a collision by up to two-thirds.

The goal of 1moresecond® is to equip drivers with tools to manage their emotions and choices before they lead to destructive actions.
