Car Insurance: What to Consider When Adding a Teen Driver to Your Policy, Campbellsville, Kentucky

Every parent is apprehensive about the day their teenager gets behind the wheel, and for good reason. A learner's permit is a rite of passage, but it means your car insurance rates will go up when you add your child to your policy. Adding a teen driver to your coverage often is expensive, so it's important to ensure your family and assets are protected. Reed Brothers Insurance in Campbellsville, KY, would like to explain a few aspects to consider when insuring a teen driver.

Ask Your Agent When To Add New Drivers To Your Car Insurance

Many insurance agencies have drop-down provisions in their car insurance policies that significantly reduce the coverage for any driver not explicitly listed. Some insurers prefer a teen driver to be added to their parents’ plan when they first start learning to drive, while others require you to wait until they're a licensed driver. Before your teen gets behind the wheel, check with your insurance agent about adding them to your policy.

Increase Your Liability Maximum

If your teen driver causes an accident that results in a serious injury or property damage, the victims are entitled to file a claim against you, so it's in your best interest to raise your liability limits until your child is older. By increasing your deductible, you might provide the coverage your family needs without increasing your monthly premium.
