"How much does it cost to insure a teenager? "

"My daughter is 16 and just got her license. I have Progressive insurance. How much will they charge to add her to my insurance?


“Congratulations to your daughter! While there is no specific cost to add a new driver to your insurance policy, here are a few things to consider.
Insurance costs are usually significantly impacted by driving experience and driving record. Your daughter cannot control how much experience she has, but she can control her driving record with good, safe driving habits.
If possible, make sure the car your daughter is assigned to on the policy is the oldest car with liability coverage only.
Also, ask your agent about the good student discount and any other discounts that may apply. Depending on where you live, you and your daughter may be able to take a defensive driving course to save 10% or more on your insurance!
When there are big events like this, it makes sense to re-shop your insurance. Jerry shops automatically for you at every policy renewal so you’re always getting the right coverage at the best price!”
