Can students get cheap car insurance?

I currently pay $200 a month for insurance. I am a student and live on a budget. Can I find cheaper car insurance? Everywhere seems to be really expensive.

“Shopping around with brokers like Jerry may help you find cheaper car insurance rates than what you might pay now. You may also want to check your eligibility for student discounts.
Some common student discounts include:
  • Lower rates upon completion of driving classes
  • Good driver discount
  • Discounts for being a part of certain student associations, educational organizations, fraternities, or sororities
  • Good student discount
When you’re shopping for affordable car insurance, you’ll need to look at both major and smaller regional carriers. Continue to shop every time your policy is up for renewal to find the best rate possible.”
