A parent’s most stressful time may be when their child gets their first license. Often there is good reason.
Young drivers are statistically the ones that cause the most damage to themselves and others which means their rates will be more expensive during this period than any other time. The very youngest pay the most with rates starting to decline slightly at age 19, then 21 and often get the final move to adult driver status at age 25.
Although the cost of your young driver’s insurance is the initial fear, the ultimate fear is injury to your young driver.
