Why is car insurance so much more expensive for younger drivers?

Why are younger drivers charged so much for car insurance? I'm 20 and I don't get why my car insurance is so expensive.

“Car insurance is more expensive for younger drivers because they don’t have enough experience to prove they aren’t a risk. In the eyes of most insurance companies, older drivers are less likely to cause accidents that result in costly claims.
While this can be frustrating, age is not the only factor impacting the cost of car insurance. The price of car insurance can also rise depending on the buyers:
  • Location
  • Driving history
  • Provider
But try not to worry! Keep driving safely and your insurance will get more affordable over time. If you can’t wait till then, try looking into alternative providers with more affordable premiums.
