Car insurance companies rely on a driver's age to estimate risk, pricing premiums accordingly. An insurance policy is often priciest for teen drivers — due to their increased odds of being involved in an accident — and more affordable for middle-aged drivers. Because every car insurance company rates age brackets differently, it's worth shopping around and finding the best rate for you.
As a general rule, teen drivers should choose 21st Century over State Farm: the former's average annual rates are $587 less than the latter's..
