Parenting is a difficult job and requires a lot of responsibility. Not only are we raising humans to be successful adults in our society, but we also have to think about the every-day decisions that affects our entire family. Currently, my kids are only 4 and 6 – but I cannot describe to you how quickly those 6 years have gone. Unbelievable actually. So here’s the reality, even parents like me should keep the idea of having a teen driver in your mind.
To give you some peace of mind and information, here are some great tips to consider when making this transition:
- Check with your agent to see about covering your teen as not all states have the same laws.
- Think about the car that is right for your teen. A car’s make and year do effect the premiums for car insurance. Experts recommend Sedans and minivans as a great option for a first car.
- Think about sharing. Sharing a car can be beneficial when it comes to keeping premiums as low as possible. You can add your teen as a secondary driver to your already existing policy.
In addition to getting the proper insurance policy for your family make sure the new teen driver is involved in these meetings and decisions. Driving is a huge responsibility – both mentally and financially. Maybe seeing the financial responsibility will result in that teen driver being more responsible while behind the wheel.
What tips would you give to a parent that is Adding a Teen Driver to Car Insurance?
