If you're carrying an at-fault collision, speeding ticket, reckless driving citation, or DUI on your driving record, Farm Bureau Mutual could be a better choice than Nationwide. Every insurance company will handle driving offenses differently, so it's worth comparing quotes to figure out which insurer is best for you.
|Infraction||Farm Bureau Mutual avg. annual premium||Nationwide avg. annual premium|

Insurance companies rely on a driver's age to outline risk potential, pricing policies on a sliding scale. An insurance policy is usually priciest for teen drivers — due to their increased odds of being involved in an accident — and relatively affordable for older drivers. Because each insurance company evaluates age tiers differently, it's a smart move to shop around.
As a general rule, teen drivers should choose Farm Bureau Mutual over Nationwide: Farm Bureau Mutual offers average yearly savings of $857, compared to Nationwide.
