How can I find cheap car insurance as a student?

I'm in college and need to get car insurance. I was previously on my parents' insurance. I've looked into a few carries and rates seem pretty expensive. How can I find cheap car insurance?

Car insurance for students isn’t cheap, regardless of the company. However, many insurers offer different types of student discounts that may lower your rate enough to make it more financially manageable.
Some common insurance discounts for students include:
  • Good student discount
  • Good driver discount
  • Lower rates upon completion of driving classes
  • Discounts for being a part of certain student associations, educational organizations, fraternities, or sororities
To determine what discounts you’re eligible for and to find cheap car insurance, shop as many rates as possible on sites like Jerry. As a licensed broker that offers end-to-end support, the free Jerry app gathers affordable quotes, helps you switch plans, and even cancels your old policy for you.”
