Car insurance for college students can be pricey for sure, but you can capitalize on certain discounts. One that can reap up to 20 percent off is the “Student Away” discount. Typically, you qualify if you are listed on your parent’s policy and drive one of their cars they keep at home but attend college 100 or miles away. Some insurers may also require that you are under age 26 and unmarried to receive the discount.
Defensive driving classes go beyond the basics taught in driver’s education by having motorists learn how to drive in hazardous conditions, anticipate dangerous situations and avoid accidents. The best part? The cost is usually only $25 to $75 and you’ll typically snag a discount of five to 15 percent for three years.  Note, however, that insurer and state law requirements for these discounts vary a great deal. For example, 21st Century Insurance offers a discount to drivers under the age of 21 who take a state approved defensive driver course but with Esurance the discount is not age-based and is available to all drivers in New York, New Jersey, North Dakota, Georgia and Oklahoma.
All drivers are required by law to carry an auto liability insurance policy. A liability policy is the most basic kind of auto insurance on the market, providing a level of protection for vehicular accidents in which the policyholder is liable for injury or damage. If you are involved in a vehicular collision for which you are at fault, your liability car insurance will cover any medical bills or property damage for the other driver(s) resulting from the accident. Liability insurance policies are typically cheaper than more comprehensive policies, so keep in mind that this type of insurance will not cover your own injuries and expenses - only those of the other parties. Each state requires a different minimum level of liability insurance for its drivers. Since accidents are often much more expensive than the minimum liability coverage, Acceptance offers a range of affordable insurance options for additional liability protection so you can be sure you're covered in any unexpected situation.

The effect of this restriction on insurers is that young men actually pay less and young women pay more for car insurance than if insurers were to set rates based on gender. This is because males—that are typically riskier drivers—raise the average cost of coverage for the group of drivers as a whole, and safer women drivers end up paying more for car insurance.
In the states with no-fault insurance, insured drivers are typically paid for medical expenses by their own insurers, regardless of who caused the accident. Nonetheless, BI liability coverage is still required in no-fault states because if injuries are bad, the at-fault driver may be sued by the injured party. If that happens, your BI coverage can help cover your liability expenses.
