“Getting your own insurance is exciting! There are many factors that will impact your insurance rate, so you may need to do some shopping to find cheap car insurance.
Your driving experience and driving record will likely be the most significant factor in determining your rate. There isn’t much you can do about that, except to keep a good driving record moving forward. You might qualify for discounts, and because insurance is competitive, agents usually try to get you as many discounts as they can.
If you are already listed as a driver on another policy, you might get a better rate to stay with the same company.
