What is the average cost of insuring a young driver versus an older driver
Insurance companies are always trying to figure out how much risk they want to take on. So, when they look at a new driver, it’s not just about the cost of coverage for you. They also have to factor in the likelihood that you will cause an accident or be involved in one as well as your age and gender.
Insurance companies tend to like older drivers because they are less likely to be involved in an accident due to experience, than younger drivers. The figures vary by state but, on average, teenage drivers are about three times more likely than older drivers to be in accidents, according to the Insurance Information Institute (III). Still, the cost of car insurance for teens is an average of four times the amount for older drivers, according to a 2011 study.
In North Carolina, for example, you can expect to pay about $5,000 a year for car insurance if you are a 20-year-old male driver with no accidents and a good credit score. In contrast, a 60-year-old driver with a clean driving record is looking at an average annual premium of $1,252 – that’s about one-fourth the cost.
When should you get insurance for your child
Most insurance companies offer discounts if the child is added to your policy. You can access these discounts even if they are not driving their own car.
Finally, you may want to add your child as a second driver on your auto insurance policy to get discounts. However, be aware that some companies refuse to offer any discounts to children who drive other people’s cars because of this liability issue.
