As a teenager who just got my license, how much can I expect to pay for insurance in Connecticut?

"I've had my learner's permit for two years and have been driving with my dad. I want to purchase insurance for a Mitsubishi 3000GT SL. How much will it cost? Will the fact that I've been driving for two years (even with a learner's permit) give me a better rate?"

“There are many factors involved in calculating your car insurance rates, including your age, location, type of car, and driving history.
Unfortunately, companies base rates starting with the date you were first licensed, so they will classify you as a new driver. Insurance rates for sports cars will also be expensive.
You might get better rates by being added to your parents’ insurance instead of looking for a policy on your own. But if you do want to shop for your own insurance, be sure to compare rates by using tools like Jerry.”
