But there are ways that young drivers can help to lower their insurance rates and minimize the financial impact.

Young students should be aware that high marks in school can equal lower financial responsibilities where auto insurance is concerned.

  1. A student that shows a high grade point average is considered to be more mature and show more responsibility, so is therefore less likely to cause roadway accidents.

Any traffic citations or violations on a young driver’s record will drive up the insurance premiums, even if they do have a higher grade point average.

Requiring the student to pay a portion of their insurance will add to their awareness of cost and give them cause to drive responsively in order to minimize the insurance effect on their wallet.
