Young Driver Discounts

Young Driver

Getting a discount for a young driver, or a new driver can be a difficult task. Keep in mind that as the years go on, a clean driving record will continue to lower costs. Some insurance companies have specific policies focused on young drivers and may even offer some young driver discounts.

A new and growing trend is to offer discounts to young drivers who are doing well in school. The insurance companies view the good grades as a positive sign pointing towards responsibility. Many companies require the student to maintain a 3.0 grade point average or higher in order to qualify for this program.

Another way to get young driver costs lowered is by taking driving classes in addition to the normal driving education class. In some states no classes are required for teens to get their license, and in this case any class taken will be a positive step towards lowering costs.
