How can you save on car insurance for new drivers?

My niece just got her driver's license and her first car. She needs insurance, but has a pretty small budget. How can she save on insurance as a new driver?

Answer
The cost of being a new driver and car owner are shockingly expensive, at least at first. Luckily, your niece can save on her car insurance as a new driver with a few tips.
Some companies extend discounts to good students or new drivers. If your niece is under the age of 25, State Farm offers a great program called Steer Clear. Steer Clear is a program that drivers under 25 can complete to save money on their car insurance.
Other major companies, like Progressive and GEICO, offer telematics or driving behavior discount programs. Taking a driver training course can also get her a discount with several companies.
To make the most of her budget, make sure she shops around with at least three different car insurance companies. Rates vary between companies, so comparison shopping ensures she’s getting the best price.
