Aging changes more than just your hair color. Your auto insurance policy will be affected by both the changes to your lifestyle and your experience that aging brings on.
Auto Insurance for Young Drivers
As a young driver, you will have little experience behind the wheel. In addition, you are statistically more likely to take risks while driving that could result in a higher frequency of accidents and insurance claims. As a result, according to Insurance and Financial Advisor Web News, your premiums could be as much as 100 percent higher than those offered to older drivers.
Ages 25 to 34
Once a driver reaches age 25 they will likely see their Houston auto insurance rates drop. This is especially true of those who've had few claims in the years before. Between ages of 25 and 34, many drivers become married, start families, and buy homes. This too can lend itself to lowered risk and lowered insurance premiums.
Ages 35 to 39
Research quoted on IFAWebNews.com found that drivers aged 35 to 39, on average, pay almost half of what drivers aged 16 to 19 pay. Again, this is the result of age and experience reducing a driver’s risk. Of course, drivers who have proven to be high risk through a history of moving violations and accident claims will not find this age-related decrease in premiums to be the case.
Ages 65 and Up
Drivers age 65 and up who have had few, if any, accident claims or moving violations will often be charged the lowest auto insurance rates of all. Part of this reduction premium could be attributed to customer loyalty after spending many decades with the same auto insurance provider. Also helping is the fact that many people in this age group log fewer daily miles than younger drivers who must commute to work each day.
