Being a new driver in Calgary can be a stressful experience. In between getting used to driving in the first place, you have to figure out insurance policies and where you stand as a new driver. Of course, sometimes it's not as easy as it sounds.
As a new driver, you have to carry heavy burdens on your shoulders. Because insurance companies see you as more prone to causing accidents, be prepared to pay more on your monthly premiums. Unfortunately, there is nothing that you can do about this.
The good news is that there are many ways to lower those premiums and that it does not have to be as complicated as it sounds. We will not go over them in this blog post as we have discussed them in the past before, but if you are interested, we recommend looking them up online -- you are bound to find something helpful!
The other good news is that the new driver stage does not last forever. If you are able to maintain a clean driving record for the first two years of driving then you can expect insurance companies to lower your monthly premiums eventually.
And of course, not every insurance company was created equally. With a bit of research you will find that some insurance companies offer lower rates to begin with. If you live in Calgary we encourage you to request a free Calgary new driver insurance quote such as the one offered by Sharp Insurance. This is the quickest and surest way to find out where you stand as a new driver!
