Young Driver Car Insurance Sticker Shock!
Unless they are insurance agents, most parents are stunned when their teenager starts to drive. They are shocked because of the price of car insurance, which may be triple that of the experienced drivers. This is because the student driver does not have their own driving history, and so insurance companies lump student drivers together with other drivers their age. This group, traditionally, experiences a high accident rate, and young males are hit even harder than young females.
