 Among the carriers we work with, Citizens Insurance stands out for its commitment to promoting safe teen driving. They recognize the challenges associated with inexperienced drivers and have developed specialized programs to address these concerns.

  1.  Teen Smart Driver Program: Citizens Insurance offers a Teen Smart Driver Program, providing new drivers with the opportunity to enhance their skills through a comprehensive driver safety course. Completing this course not only promotes responsible driving habits but can also lead to discounted insurance prices. It's a win-win situation – increased safety for your teen and reduced premiums for you.
  2. Safe Teen Driving App: Keeping a close eye on your teen's driving habits is crucial for ensuring their safety on the road. Citizens Insurance offers a Safe Teen Driving App, allowing the insurance company to monitor driving behavior. This proactive approach can lead to premium relief for guardians paying the bulk, offering peace of mind and financial benefits.
  3.  Drive Smart - Added Deductible: With the Safe Teen Protect program, Citizens Insurance provides an added layer of protection by introducing deductibles for vehicles that aren't typically driven by your teen. This ensures that your primary vehicle remains safeguarded while your teen gains driving experience with additional vehicles.

Other carriers we work with, provide a Good Student Discount: By submitting your child's report card, you may qualify for a Good Student Discount. Encouraging educational excellence not only benefits your child but also translates into more savings on your insurance premiums.
