1. The Young and the Restless
Youth! Your future is yours, and you have infinite potential. You also have the potential to text and drive, get distracted easily, drive under the influence, and make a lot of claims. You don’t have much experience driving so the chances of you getting into an accident are high. According to the American Automobile Association, drivers aged 15-17 are responsible for $34 billion annually in property and life damages. Insurance companies will often offer you outrageous quotes, so it is not surprising that they can be quite expensive.
a. Get up Literally. If you reach 25 and have not filed any claims against your insurance company or had your driving record revoked for violations, your rates will likely drop significantly.
b. Discounts Many car insurance companies offer discounts for students. These include a Good Student Discount (which requires that you are under 25 and have a minimum GPA of at least B+) and Driver Training Credit (which only students aged 21 and below can choose for).
2. The Rebel on a Road

3. The Drunk
DUI can have a negative impact on your insurance rates. You could lose your insurance policy and be subject to cancellation. New providers might not accept you as a client. You could be paying exorbitant rates for insurance if they do.
This is the only solution. Don’t drink and drive. Driving under the influence can lead to you being uninsured and unable legally to drive.
4. Mr. Mr.
Modifications can make your engine growl and give you more traction, and so forth. Keep in mind, however, that insurance companies won’t pay for modifications if there is a claim for damages. In some cases, they may reject your claim if you have not informed them. Modified cars are also more expensive. You can make your car more attractive by doing so. Be prepared for the consequences.
If you have to modify your car, make sure you get coverage from a provider that covers it. To save money on your insurance premiums, make sure you have the mods covered separately. Although it may seem difficult to find a company willing to do this, you can still get decent rates and a nice car if you put in the effort.

Perhaps you don’t want to look at other providers. You’ve been with the company for years. This is why your rates are so high. You might be missing out on a world of lower insurance rates, better service, and comprehensive coverage.
