Compare personalized young drivers car insurance quotes from Canada's top providers, for free.
Matt Hands, Business Director, Insurance
Young drivers (people aged 16-24) pay more for car insurance because insurance companies view them as high-risk. But there are many ways to get the best car insurance for new drivers under 25. The easiest way is to compare car insurance quotes for young drivers to ensure you’re paying the best price. You can do that now, for free, by entering your postal code into our car insurance estimator.
Insurance companies use historical data and statistics to give you your rate. Young drivers account for only 10% of drivers on the road, but conversely they’re involved in roughly 25% of collisions. Based on statistics alone you can see why insurance may be higher for young drivers. But, fear not, there are many tips and tricks you can use even before and after this process to make sure you're paying the cheapest car insurance rate.
