Does Car Insurance Lower at a Certain Age?

Does Car Insurance Lower at a Certain Age? - Many people wonder at which age auto insurance becomes cheaper. Policyholders often expect their rates to go down after hitting a certain age and then contact their company when their renewal premium comes in at the same price.

It is often believed by many that when a driver turns 25, they will automatically get a discount for their age. Although at any given age, a policyholder can see an instant rate reduction, prices are not based on "age", but on the amount of years they've been licensed. For example, a 25 year old driver who just got their license purchases a policy, it is more likely that they will be quoted a higher rate than a younger driver, say 22, who has been driving since the age of 16.

Once a driver hits three years licensed, they are likely to get a discount since they may be now qualify for a "good driver discount" given that their driving record is clean, meaning no violations. If there is something to look forward to as a young driver, hitting three years licensed should be it. Car insurance can significantly go down with the application of a good driver discount since it can range in the area of 20%.

Each insurance company has it's own guidelines about proving driving experience. Some will automatically give you full driving experience since the age of sixteen once you hit three years driving. For example, if one is 25 when they become licensed, at age 28, they will get credit for 12 years driving experience. (since age 16) Other companies will use "actual driving experience" which will be the exact length of time based on the issue date of the license.

At one point, too much age would raise rates instead of lowering them. For example, if one approaches the later years in life, they may be more probable to an accident. Through statistics, insurers may raise rates for those in their senior years.

After paying $300 a mo. w/Allstate, we could finally no longer afford it. I switched to Reliant just to get enough coverage to drive around with @ only $56 a mo. for both cars. Just last month (after 1 1/2 yrs.)they lowered it to $45. Now that I can afford the minimum, I will be adding full coverage.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
