Drivers with good driving records typically enjoy lower car insurance costs than drivers with histories of speeding tickets, at-fault accidents, or DUI citations. Georgia drivers without a recent at-fault accident save 37% on their car insurance, on average — a solid amount more than the national average of 32%. In addition to earning a cheaper premium for driving incident-free, you may qualify for a safe-driving bonus through your car insurance company. The amount of these discounts may vary, but they typically run between 5 and 10%.

Young drivers (those between the ages of 16 and 25) pay extraordinarily high auto insurance rates, with those aged 16-19 paying the most expensive premiums of all. Because of the risk presented by inexperienced drivers, teens pay more than three times the national average for car insurance. In Georgia, the typical teen driver pays $5,082 per year — about $100 more than the national average and more than three times what the average Georgia driver pays.

If you have a clean driving record in Georgia — no at-fault accidents, speeding tickets, DUIs, or other recent citations — you'll probably pay less for car insurance. Conversely, a bad driving record will cause your rates to skyrocket: car insurance premiums typically increase by 34% after a DUI, 37% after an at-fault accident, and 17% after a speeding ticket in Georgia. Car insurance companies penalize Peach State drivers less severely after DUI violations than many other states. If you have a sparkling clean driving history, be sure to inquire about your insurer's safe driver discount.

Each auto insurer boasts about its low costs. But just like with any product, the cheapest choice isn't always the finest idea.
