How to lower your car insurance as a new driver?

I’m 16 and I’ve just gotten my license. My parents told me I could get my own car if I help pay for insurance (I am on their policy). How can I help lower the cost of insurance?

Congratulations on getting your license! There are a few things you can do to lower the cost of your family’s policy. If you earn a B average or above in school, you can qualify your family for a good student discount and potentially save them up to 25%.
Other discounts for your parents to check out include:
  • Good Driver Discount
  • Defensive Driver Discount
  • Anti-theft Discount
  • Bundling Discount
  • E-billing Discount
  • Paid-in-full Discount
Another good way to reduce the cost of car insurance is to compare quotes online. Jerry can help your family compare quotes from up to 50 top providers. Chances are that a better deal is out there for the exact same coverage.
