Not having a credit history doesn't mean you have bad credit but it will take time to build credit. I suggest speaking directly with an agent and see what they suggest as it could be company specific. Certain companies won't write policies for you if you don't have a credit or write a policy for you with a subsidiary company. Moreover, because your credit is such a big rating factor, I would be hesitant to simply guess. According our State of Insurance reports, the difference between those with "great" credit and those with "poor" is about $1,430 per year.
