How do you get cheap car insurance for a new driver?

I just got my license and need to insure my car. I'm 21, but I don't have much experience driving. My family told me insurance is going to be really expensive. How do you get cheap car insurance as a new driver?

Answer
While finding cheap car insurance for a new driver is difficult, it isn’t impossible.
To start, take a driver training course. Many insurance companies offer discounts when you to complete the program.
If you’re in school and get good grades, try to find an insurance company that offers a good student discount.
To find out what your rates for insurance will be, compare quotes with various companies. Aim to gather quotes from at least three different companies. This will allow you to see what rates and discounts are available to you.
While looking at quotes, remember that your rates won’t always be high. As long as you maintain a clean driving record, your rates will decrease as you gain more experience.
If you’d rather leave the hard work of gathering quotes to someone else, use Jerry. This free app can collect quotes from up to 50 top insurance companies in seconds!
