Are you getting ready to add a teen driver to your auto insurance policy? If so, congrats! Before you head into our dealership to pick out your child’s next ride, you’ll want to think about your insurance policy.

When you visit our Land Rover dealership near Andover, MA, we’ll explain that there are a few things you can do to offset the costs involved with adding a teen to your car insurance. One of the smartest things you can do is to install a tracking device in the vehicle your child will drive most often so your insurance carrier can monitor your child’s driving.

It’s also advisable for you to contact your insurance company to ask if you’re eligible for any discounts. If your child is a good student, you may qualify for a discount. Similarly, if your teenager took a driver safety class or your child signed a safe driver contract, you may be able to get a discount when you add your youngster to your policy.

If you’re going to buy an automobile for your new driver, you may want to get a pre-owned Land Rover model instead of a new one. It’s normally less expensive to insure a previously owned vehicle than it is to insure a new vehicle. You can use the savings to offset the cost of covering your child with your auto insurance.

Parents of teens who don’t have a car and who attend college more than 100 miles away from home should contact their insurance companies. That’s because they may qualify for a distant driver discount.
