How do I add my son to my car insurance policy with The General?

I have insurance with The General. My son just got his driver's license, and I want to add him to my policy. However, I've heard that adding younger drivers can be expensive, and I've never had to add a new driver to my policy before. How do I go about doing this?

Answer
“Congratulations to your son! I’m happy to say that adding him to your policy with The General is easy and painless: you can either go online or call 1-866-519-7422.
You’ll need to provide them with the following information:
  • Age
  • Name
  • Driver’s license number
  • Social Security number
  • Driving record
However, you heard right—your car insurance premium could go up exponentially if your son is below 25 years old. This age group is considered high risk by insurance companies, and so premiums tend to be pricier.
If you want to see if switching plans or providers would give you a better deal, try using Jerry. We’ll get you over 50 customized quotes from top-of-the-line providers so you can choose the coverage you need at the best price point. If you do want to switch providers, we’ll help with the phone calls and paperwork, too! That way, all you have to do is focus on celebrating this milestone with your son.
Congratulations again, and best of luck!”
