With Nationwide, there are lots of ways to protect your teen while staying within your budget. For example, a higher auto insurance deductible may lower the rate, but could mean more out-of-pocket expenses after an accident.

Getting the right coverage that best fits your needs is important for saving money on your teen auto policy. Learn more about Nationwide’s auto insurance coverage types today.

State Farm’s discounts include those for good students, multiple automobiles, other products, and good driving habits (go at least three years without moving violations and no at-fault accidents).

The numbers go up quickly for subsequent convictions. If you are caught driving without insurance for an additional time, you will be fined between $350 and $1000. And you will still have to pay that additional $250 surcharge on your license for at least three years. There’s more. Repeat offenders also risk having their license revoked and their vehicle impounded. If that happens, you will face a long hard (and expensive) battle to get your license reinstated and your car back.
