Your Questions About New Driver Car Insurance Cost
What is the average price for insurance on teenage drivers?
If I want to insure my teenage driver on my car, how much do you think my insurance would go up?
And how much would it cost to insure my teenagers own car?
I’ve heard that insurance is normally lower for teenage girls. Is that true?
There is no average price, it depends on a variety of factors from type of vehicle to ZIP code. Your agent can tell you what it will increase to add your child to your policy. Yes, it is lower for girls because statistically they are better drivers.
Any tips for getting the money I deserve from an auto insurance company?
I was in an accident, where the other driver was clearly at fault. He was driving his girlfriends vehicle, and the cars insurance also belonged to her. He was very elusive from the start. He gave me limited information to work with, and lied and told me he was insured. I figured out the name of the girlfriends company American Independent 3 days later. They sent a guy out who said that the car is totalled. But American Independent says they cant pay me until they speak with the poicy holder to see if she gave him permission to drive her car, and contact him to get his side of the story. They have been avoiding all calls. Any help?
Write a letter to the insurance commissioner for your state make sure you get (fax or email a copy) copy to the insurance company post haste. Mention they have 10 days (required by law) or you will sue. Even a little drag on your part will cause even more delays. Plan B if the value is less than your state will allow in small claims court then sue the car owner in that court. It only costs a few bucks and the court will take your side in cases like yours. Any time a vehicle is totalled by the insurance company Court decisions lean in your favor. You need to sue for Value of vehicle plus any and all costs you incur trying to collect even lawyer fees.
Why are teens so looking forward to get their driver’s license and drive?
I read questions and answers from other teens on here that they’re looking forward to taking driver‘s ed, getting their license, getting a car, and taking their friends out every weekend this summer. Are they totally oblivious that gasoline is skyrocketing, and will be $4 a gallon this summer, and probably $5 a gallon next year? And car insurance will cost more than twice what their parents pay for themselves combined.
Teens don’t usually think about that stuff, because at 16, their parents are most likely paying for all of that, including the car itself.
On the other hand it is good to learn how to drive earlier, so they can be more independent.
