How much does it cost to add a learner driver to car insurance?

My son is learning how to drive soon, and he will be using my car for his learner's permit test. How much does it cost to add a learner driver to my car insurance policy?

Answer
What an exciting time for your son! Adding a teen driver to your existing policy is a great way to save money compared to purchasing a separate one. However, teen drivers are the riskiest group to insure, and you can expect your premium to increase by about 58% after adding your son.
Even teens with the safest driving histories will pay higher car insurance costs until they turn 25 and have gained more driving experience.
However, there are some ways you can save on the cost of adding your son to your policy. Check with your insurer for [good student discounts](add link), which can lower premium costs for high school and college students with a B average or better. And, to save the most money on car insurance in the future, download the Jerry app, which generates free quotes from over 50 of the nation’s leading providers so you can get the best rate.
Best of luck to your son on his driver’s test!
