How much is care insurance for your teen? Where do you live.

We just got quotes for our 17 yr boy with good grades and it was 3600 a year just to put him on one of our cars. Wow that is $300 a month. We can not afford that. How much is it where you live? We are in Los Angeles County So Ca.

  • That is about right, they have to be fully covered thats why. I live in CA as well and when I was 17 it was $500 a month for me to be on my parents insurance.

  • Make sure your child has a solid B average and you will get a good student discount. I have no idea what mine was when I was added to my parents insurance, that was 22 years ago. I do know that I pay $80 a month for full coverage insurance.

  • We live in Central Illinois and Jake just got his license today. We went to the insurance company and for a 1994 Ford Ranger pickup truck, it is gonna be 58 per month for liability or 350 every 6 months. I didn't think that was horrid, but compared to some of the other answers, I feel lucky!
