Drivers with good driving records typically enjoy lower car insurance costs than drivers with histories of speeding tickets, at-fault accidents, or DUI citations. Utah drivers without a recent moving violation save just 14% on their car insurance premiums, on average — compared to the national average of 17%. 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%.

|No Traffic Tickets||$178||14.00%|
Young drivers — those between the ages of 16 and 25 — pay high auto insurance rates, with those between the ages of 16 and 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. Utah is one of the most expensive states in which to insure a teen driver. The average Utah teen pays $5,004 per year — almost five times as much as an older Utah driver.

The post-citation penalties assessed by car insurance companies after driving violations in Utah are slightly lower than national averages.

Considering the financial stakes, it's worthwhile to do the research to zero in on the insurance policy that protects your vehicle completely in the event of an incident. Exercise some patience and look for a great value, instead of settling for the cheapest car insurance in your state.
