As a teen, how much cheaper would it be to register for car insurance under my parents' plan instead of getting my own plan?
I'm 17 years old and I'm about to get my license. I've heard car insurance is really, really pricey for someone my age. Is it cheaper if I just go on my parents' plan vs. getting my own? My parents say I can do whatever is less expensive.
It all depends on the type of driver you are and the car insurance company you purchase coverage from, but it would generally be much cheaper to be on your parents’ plan.
