Although your teen may find driving to be the most exciting thing to happen in their entire life, you as the parent, are probably feeling much anxiety over this new change. This is normal as driving is a huge responsibility as well as a new expense. Here are a few things to keep in mind when you are preparing to add a teen driver to your auto policy.
Keep an Eye on the Details
Things have changed quite a bit since you got your license. Many states have new restrictions on when teens can drive and who can be passengers in the car with them. In order to avoid costly tickets, it is important that both you and your child understand these laws. There are also many details concerning how and when to insure your new driver. You will need to discuss these details with the folks at Express Insurance serving Longwood, FL and surrounding areas.
This is a good time to shop around to make sure you are getting the best deal. Some families find that once a teen is added they can get a better deal with a new company. Give yourself plenty of time to shop and find the best deal for you.
Insist on Good Driving Practices
Make sure that your teen understands that you will not tolerate poor driving practices. Poor driving practices are first of all dangerous, but secondly, they can also be costly to you as the parent. Your teen should understand that once they take on the responsibility of driving they are also taking on the possible consequences of their driving.
