New drivers are among the most dangerous on the road

New drivers are among the most dangerous on the road, racking up tickets and accidents at rates several times the rate of the average driver.

Adding a teenage driver to your car insurance opens a new level of risk window, and will increase your rates; but you have some control over how much they’ll climb.

Having teens drive a Camry rather than a Corvette, encouraging them to bring home report cards with straight A’s, and urging them to keep their driving records clean can all have a major impact on rates and their safety.

“Putting your teen in a big, boring vehicle is going to be a lot easier on the wallet and offer more protection in an auto accident than giving them the zippy small car they may want,” says Russ Rader, spokesperson for the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
