How do I pay for insurance in college?

I'm a college student and just purchased my first car. My friends have told me their insurance is really high. How do I pay for insurance in college?

Answer
Car insurance for a college student can be extremely expensive, but you can still pay for insurance with the right tips.
The first thing you need to do is see what your rates will be. Gather quotes from at least three or four insurance providers. While you are gathering quotes, find out what discounts you may qualify for.
Although premiums for college students and young drivers may be more expensive, it doesn’t mean you can’t save. You may qualify for a good student discount or you could opt to take a driving course. If you are a safe driver, consider enrolling in a telematics or driving behavior discount program.
