Insurance For Teen Drivers

Getting your driver's license can be a terrific experience. For some teenagers, a driver's license is viewed as an achievement. For others, it's a ticket to independence and a rite of passage. In either case, one thing is for sure: with this privilege comes great responsibility.

As a teen, you're considered a high-risk driver. In fact, teenagers have the highest death rate of any group of drivers. Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among 15- to 20-year olds, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. Other than supervised driving in training classes or with parents, teens have very little experience behind the wheel, which leads to more frequent speeding tickets and accidents and, therefore, higher insurance rates.

But there are steps parents and teens can take to increase safety and lower their insurance rates. NW Insurance Council offers the following resources to help you safely navigate your teen driving years.
