How much will my car insurance cost if I'm 17 and want to get off my parents' policy?

I'm trying to become more independent before I go off to college. How much should I expect to pay for car insurance if I'm 17 and want to get off my parents' insurance policy?

“Kudos on wanting to become a more independent individual. Few others consciously make that decision. However, you might want to find other ways to gain your independence.
Generally speaking, teenagers spend an average of about $400 a month for car insurance, even if it’s just basic liability insurance. By staying on your parents’ policy, you can expect to pay about half of that.
So if you still want a degree of independence and a taste of the real world, just pay your parents cash each month for insurance and stay on their policy.”
