Does car insurance get cheaper the longer you have a driver's license?

Everyone says that new drivers have to pay the most for insurance. So does that mean I'm going to pay less over time? Is it because I've had my driver's license longer?

Yes, the longer you have a driver’s license, the better your rates will be because you’ll be more of an experienced driver. The biggest rate decrease occurs once you’ve been licensed for three years. At that point, you are no longer considered a “new driver” and companies start to offer more competitive rates.
