    Well you might get discount for having a safe and fuel efficient car. It will be expensive but the rate won’t go down untill you are around 25 so don’t wait. Plus they want you to have experience. Insurance is cheaper for girls (lucky you). And insurance companies rates varry from state to state depending upon a lot of an ares characteristics. You just gotta call around the companies and get quotes.

    best chance is to google, compare car insurances and find a site that will check many for you, they go through alot of info so its better if you do it.

    Your insurance will be expensive because of your age, driving history (which is very short), and credit history (which is probably non existent) Your rates will drop when you turn 25.

    1) your under 25, your rates going to be higher.
    2) depending on what you paid for it, it may not be worth putting on collision, just liability which can be half as expensive – covers everything but you won’t get a refund if you crash your car and total it (75% damage)
    3) get on your parents policy —— MUCH CHEAPER
    4) if your school district or state have some kind of safe driver course, you can be eligible for discounts. Same if your a good student in school.
    5) Not true about girls being cheaper to insure, in fact life insurance is MORE expensive for girls because they can get more illnesses.
    6) Check with your parents when choosing an insurance company – many employers and organizations offer discounts to dependents of employees, etc.
    7) Buy domestic – cheaper to repair.

    For car insurance the fastest method to get a low quote is do a policy comparison. If you choose the same coverage amounts, you can get an quick quote to compare against others. Use the same coverage area, auto make and model, mileage and driving history to ensure you get an apples to apples comparison. To get easy auto quotes, go to and you can compare the major auto insurance companies.

    Here are some tips on how to get cheap auto insurance for teen males or females…

    * Raise their deductible – raising your teenager’s deductible from $100 to $500 can lower their insurance premium by 10% to 20%.

    * Change cars – the difference between insuring a souped-up sports car and a conservative sedan can be as much as $1,000 or more.

    * Put your teen on your policy – by insuring your teenage son or daughter on your car insurance policy, you can get up to a 15% discount on their premium.

    * Have your teenager take driver’s training – getting your teenager to take a driver’s ed course will save you 10% to 15% on their insurance and will give you a little peace of mind to boot.

    * Encourage your teen to get good grades – you can get a 10% discount in some states if your son or daughter gets good grades in school.

    * Get them to chip in – having your teenage son or daughter pay for a portion of their auto insurance premium will not only save you money, it will teach them responsibility.

    * Get multiple quotes – the exact same car insurance with different companies can vary as much as $1,000 a year. That’s $10,000 over a ten-year period that you could save by spending a few minutes online comparing quotes.

    * Shop online – shopping online to get quotes from different insurance companies is the quickest and easiest way to compare rates and get cheap auto insurance for your teen.
