Pay less to insure your teen driver

If you've got a teen driver in your house, you know how expensive it is to insure them. We've got some tips to save money.

First, encourage good habits. Many insurers offer discounts off up to 20 percent for students who make the honor roll or the Dean's list. Some also offer a lower rate if you hit a certain score on standardized test. Make sure you ask what you insurer provides.

Another good idea is to have them take a safe driving course. Many insurance companies will give you a break on the fee and drop your teen's rate once they complete the class.

Driving older cars is often a way to save, but you should check with your company because the safety features on newer cars could also mean discounts.

If your kid is away at college see if your insurance offers a discount for what's called, an "away from home" driver.
