In a recent blog post, we talked about some of the advantages that come with looking for pre-owned cars as an alternative for a new model. More specifically, we mentioned the advantages of buying a certified pre-owned Porsche automobile in considerable detail.

As your local Jacksonville, FL Porsche dealers, we offer plenty of pre-owned cars for sale for reasons other than the ones we’ve already discussed. Put simply, you may want to buy one of our pre-owned Porsche models if you’re getting ready to add a teen driver to your car insurance.

In general, it costs less to insure a previously owned vehicle. Those savings can help you offset the increased premium you’ll have to pay when you add a teenage driver to your insurance.

Buying a pre-owned Porsche car isn’t the only thing you can do to avoid breaking the bank, however. Here are some other things that can help keep your premium low:

  • Ask for discounts: Depending on your insurance provider, you may be eligible for some discounts when you add a teen driver to your policy. If your teen gets good grades, has completed a driver safety program, or if you both sign a safe driver contract, you may be able to qualify.
  • Install a tracking device: See if you can save on your insurance by installing a tracking device that will allow your insurer to monitor your teen’s driving.
  • Keep your insurer informed: If your teen goes off to college and is more than 100 miles from home and his or her car, tell your insurer because you may qualify for a distant driver discount.
