Insurance for New Drivers

For some parents, the most frightening part of having a new driver around is the increase in insurance premiums. No matter what you do, you’re going to pay extra for a teen driver.

As we mentioned in our piece on How to Save Money on Your Teen’s Care Insurance, you may find that your current insurance is no longer the most affordable provider once you add a new driver. For that reason, it’s important to get a variety of quotes before your teen gets behind the wheel. Below, we’ve done the legwork in gathering information on several major auto insurance companies, along with links to their online quote pages.
