State Farm offers multiple discounts for students to help make insurance coverage more affordable for young drivers. These include discounts for good grades, completing an approved driver education course, and a discount if the student goes away to school and only drives when back home.
Student discounts are policies set by insurance companies to help young drivers and students afford coverage.
Young drivers typically pay up to 80% more on their auto insurance rates, as statistics have shown that their inexperience directly relates to a higher chance of getting into an accident and making a claim.
To help ease this spike in insurance rates, insurance companies, like State Farm, allow for student discounts. State Farm has several different types of student discounts that young drivers can apply for.
Here are some of the best student discounts available from State Farm:
