Get the car insurance you need for being a driver over age 45, at great rates, with claims service you can count on. It’s easier than you may think.
Age is one of the many factors that insurance companies consider when determining your auto insurance rates. Teenagers, young adults, and new drivers fall into a higher risk category and will have higher premiums, as research shows that young drivers are more prone to getting into an accident.. Statistics show that inexperienced drivers or drivers under 25 are much more likely to get a traffic violation such as distracted driving, speeding, failing to stop at a stop sign, running red lights etc.
Alberta has a private delivery system for personal automobile insurance and the law is that everyone has access to coverage, regardless of their driving record. There are, however, a number of factors that can impact how high your vehicle insurance rate will be:
- Number of at fault accidents
- Number of traffic tickets
- Driver training
- License suspension
- Lapse in insurance coverage
- Use of vehicle
- Number of years of continuously holding a valid driving license
- Marital status
How Old Do I Have to Be to Get a Better Rate?
Generally speaking, insurance companies begin to reduce rates for drivers with good records after the age of 25. Drivers over the age of 45 can begin to see an improvement in their policy rates, especially if they have not had any accidents or traffic violations for a number of years.
