Car insurance companies use a variety of factors to determine the risk of insuring you as a driver, such as:
  • age
  • location
  • driving history
  • type of vehicle
Companies also have access to a database called the Comprehensive Loss Underwriting Exchange (CLUE), which documents your claim history and helps them predict your future claim risk.”
