Being a new driver in Edmonton can be tough.
In-between the pressure of learning how to drive properly, you sometimes have to deal with the pressure of finding a car insurance policy that is both reliable and affordable.
Fortunately, if you live in the Edmonton area, many companies offering Edmonton new driver car insurance quotes can be found online. If you have been labelled as a new driver, we recommend discussing with your insurance broker what type of coverage would benefit you the most.
With that being said, how does one exactly go about being labelled as a "new driver"? The truth is that you can't become one: You simply are one or not.
Teenagers often tend to be classified as new drivers. If you are the parent of a teenager learning how to drive, then it is your responsibility to declare your teen as a new driver to your insurance company.
In simple words, the term new driver refers to just that: A new driver, regardless of what age he or she is.
It is important to note that new drivers are not high risk drivers. The latter are drivers that have been labelled as such by insurance companies following several infractions and route accidents. While new drivers can often be high risk drivers, it is not always the case. If you have been labelled as a high risk driver, saving money on your insurance premiums is doable.
Likewise, new driver car insurance coverage doesn't have to be too expensive. In a future blog post we will be discussing the different ways that you can go about saving money on your monthly premiums as a new driver. Until then, stay safe on the roads!
