A Few Tips to Save on Your Teen Driver’s Insurance Premiums!

July 21, 2010 Leave a comment

Insurance companies don’t exactly welcome young drivers with open arms; instead, they tend to greet new drivers with something more unwarranted like a chokehold.

The statistics confirm that young drivers, especially those under the age of twenty, are more likely to be involved in an automotive accident and therefore the insurance companies have deemed them ‘risky’.

As we all know, the term ‘risky’ is accompanied with high premiums, less forgiveness and lower tolerance.

At Al Bourdeau, we work hard to lower premiums and help young drivers to better afford their insurance.

There are a variety of ways that teenage driver cans lower their premiums.

First, most insurance companies will reward young drivers with high academic excellence by decreasing their premium. Students with high academic performance are viewed as responsible, and academically responsible students are assumed to be more conscientious on the road.

Driving a low maintenance car, those with smaller engines, 4 doors, and generally older in age, will help to decrease a premium. The installation of anti-theft and safety systems will also help to lower premiums.

Lastly, the participation in defensive driving courses can also help young drivers receive discounts on their premiums.
