As you have probably discovered, insuring a teenage driver can be very expensive. Drivers under the age of 25 pose the greatest risk to insurers. Insurance companies try to limit their exposure by charging higher insurance rates for 16- to 24-year-olds than for any other age group.
The least expensive option would probably be to add your teenager to your existing auto insurance policy once he gets his learner’s permit. Although this can still be an expensive prospect, your teen might be able to take advantage of certain discounts as a driver on your policy (e.g., safe-driver and multiple-car discounts for which you are eligible).
We can help you determine your most cost-effective option. If you’re thinking about purchasing a used car for your teen, be prepared to tell us the make, model, VIN#, and year of the cars you’re considering. This way, we can give you accurate insurance quotes and help you decide whether to purchase separate insurance for your son or add him to your policy. Sometimes these quotes can even help you decide which car to purchase.
Many insurance companies issue automobile insurance, but finding the BEST policy for you can be challenging and time consuming. This is why people come to The Insurance Doctor – because we do the shopping for you through 40 different companies.
Remember that your profile will be a good fit for one of our companies. Our shopping helps you find the policy that’s right for you.
We compare premiums offered by 40 different companies and look for high customer service standards. The ability to pay a claim promptly will be important if you’re ever involved in an accident. And of course, we offer 24 hour claims service.
Finally, we understand insurance discounts and how you may be able to take advantage of them. You may benefit from multi-car and/or multi-driver discounts. You may receive a multiple policy discount if you purchase your auto insurance coverage through the same insurer that covers your motorcycle or boat insurance. An insurer may also offer you a discount if you have a safe driving record or have completed a driver’s education course.
Give us the chance to compare 40 companies and rates to ensure that you make the decision that’s right for you.
Lets talk about you for a minute – and what you deserve from people like us.
You want to save money… without spending your life learning the insurance business and shopping for the right policy. Research is our job. Leave that to us.
If you are a safe driver, you want to be sure you are getting the savings you deserve. You probably have no idea the discounts you may qualify for. We’ll show you.
If you have a bad driving record, you want to be treated fairly and respectfully. And you want the best policy for your current situation. We are proud to help you.
You want to pay on your terms. Maybe in small monthly payments by direct bill or EFT. Maybe you would rather pay by credit card – or in cash? We give you the choice.
You don’t want to be haunted by a traffic violation from years ago. Most insurance companies review the last five years of your driving before they will insure you. We only review the last three years of your driving record.
You don’t want to deal with the insurance company. We do it for you.
You want immediate service when you need it the most. We offer 24 hour claim service.
You want an expert as your own personal representative. Someone well-trained and friendly – who you trust to follow up with you quickly. That’s us. We’re open during lunch and in the evening to suit YOUR schedule. We’ll work with you by phone or email. Whatever suits you.
You don’t want to deal with an automated answering service or 1-800 numbers. We don’t want to jeopardize personal service just when you need it the most. You will get your own agent every time you call.
Let us make your life a little easier – and save you money at the same time.

High school is full of defining moments for teens and two of the highlights for most are prom and graduation.
However, this time of year often sees other, more tragic defining moments – serious car accidents involving teens who are distracted or even under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
At the Insurance Doctor, we want to help make this season one to celebrate for you and your teen. So, with the help of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, here are some tips that can keep your teen safe.
First, encourage your teen to follow these general safe-driving rules:
Absolutely no alcohol
Always use seat belts
No cell phone use (including texting) while driving
