If you are a new driver, you are thinking; “how can I lower my Insurance Premium?” Although there are some things you can do now, there are factors that will affect your long term insurance premium. The biggest factor is your driving record. Of course, right now you do not have a driving record, hence, why you insurance premium is so high. As of now, the insurance companies see you as a huge risk and liability. It is up to you, throughout the years of driving, to establish a good driving record and prove to them you are a responsible driver.

What can I do Now?

First off, you can start your driving record off on the right foot. You should take a driving course so you know what to expect while driving. In a driving course, it shows you the responsibilities, as a driver, which you will be held accountable for. It also shows you how to react to certain circumstances and shows you how to be an overall good and safe driver. If you are in high school, you can typically take this class as a curriculum course. If your school does not offer Drivers Education, or you are not currently in high school, you can take the class online. There are an overwhelming amount of sites that offer driving courses. Be aware that there are sites out there posing as accredited courses. Make sure you check the site out before you pay to take a class. If you choose one that is not accredited, your class will be worthless and not count toward a discount.

The next thing you can do is drive safely. This helps you now because you are decreasing risk that you will be in an accident. If you keep this up, there will be long term benefits.

Avoid speeding and make sure you obey traffic devices. If you receive tickets for speeding, running a red light, not yielding, etc., that will go onto your driving record. Any ticket you receive will be recorded and put on a driving record that the insurance will pull up. Most insurance companies check their clients yearly. If they see a ticket for anything, your premium will surely increase. The insurance company does not take tickets lightly, as you are increasing their risk on you.

What can I do in the Future?

When you have been driving for a while, reevaluate your insurer. Are they offering you the best rate? Once you have a good driving record, you can shop around for insurance. Insurance companies have realized people can change their insurance at a drop of a hat. This means they are competing greatly for your business. Insurers like Geico can typically offer the best deals due to the size of the company. Whichever insurer you choose to go with, make sure they are reputable and have enough money in the company to cover your loses in case of an accident.
