Below are a few tips to keep your teen safe and to keep the costs down:
Safe driving discounts
Enroll in the Steer Clear® Driver Discount Program. Your teen will need to log their supervised practice drives, sign a parent/teen agreement, do a pre-and-post program assessment, and meet with your State Farm® agent.
Good student discounts
In some states, some insurance companies actually offer discounts for students who maintain a high GPA. Consistently earning high grades is one of the most effective ways your teen can save you money on your auto insurance.
Driver safety training
It's important to make sure your teen is aware of the new risks and new costs associated with driving, as well as the importance of maintaining a clean driving record. Traffic violations will often lead to even higher premiums. Know and enforce your state's Graduated Driver Licensing laws.
If additional driver safety courses are available in your area, encourage your teen to enroll in them. In some states, attending classes beyond what's required to earn a driver's license can lead to additional savings.
See the State Farm Teen Driving resources for more information about teen driver safety and tools for new drivers and their parents.
