Jul 13, 2008
All drivers need auto insurance and nobody has the right to drive on the road without auto insurance, and if you're caught driving without insurance then you face fines and possible lose of your license. If you get into an accident your license will automatically be taken regardless of it you have insurance or not and if you're at fault for the accident then you will face fines and possibly jail time. Car insurance is important and taken very seriously so it's vital that you have the proper insurance.

When you begin shopping for insurance as a first time driver the rates are going to be generally high, and the only to help the price is if you took a driving course. By taking a driving course you're considered to be less of a threat when driving and therefore your insurance will be lower then that of somebody who didn't take a driving course and instead just got their license. Regardless of whether you took a course or not car insurance is still very costly, and you'll need to make sure you can handle the payments each month.

There is a lot of competition in the auto insurance industry therefore you should be able to shop around quite a bit and locate the deals. You'll find that the price differs quite a bit when you're shopping for car insurance and this is why it's important that you do in fact shop around. You'll ideally want to find a company that has a solid standing reputation for offering car insurance and also have reasonable rates. You don't want to get insurance with the smallest and cheapest company because auto insurance fraud is through the roof and millions are scammed each year with fake car insurance. Simply this happening to you by buying an insurance policy through a company that has many customers and a solid reputation. You might pay a bit more but at least you can rest assured you have legal and legit insurance papers in case you ever get into an accident.

Once you feel you've found the right company make sure you research it a little bit and then send in your information for a quote. Many auto insurance companies allow for quotes to be requested online so this way you can fill out a few simple forms and get many quotes. Some websites specialize in auto insurance quotes and one form will send you quotes from more then one company, these are great to use when comparing companies, but make sure if you plan on buying a policy after reading one of the quotes that you research the company a bit to make sure there legitimate. Auto insurance does cost quite a bit but it could be what saves you from going to jail or experiencing financial hardship due to an accident. You'll need to make monthly premium payments on your auto insurance and it shouldn't be too much. If you sign-up as an optional driver with your parents you might pay around $1000 a year and if you sign up as a full-time driver on your own policy you might be looking at $2500-$4000 a year.
