The Right Ride For Your Teen

Auto Insurance TexasWhat Matters Most For Your Teen Driver

When your teen gets his or her license, you experience a mixture of elation and trepidation. You are thrilled to be done with years of carpooling, but are also concerned about your teen’s safety. Fortunately, choosing a safe car can help ease your mind. Here are a few factors to consider when picking a vehicle for your teen driver.

  • Crash Test Rating: Should the worst happen and your teen get into an accident, it is crucial his or her vehicle will offer good protection. Fortunately, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety issues their crash test rankings each year so you can know how vehicles will hold up in accidents.
  • Vehicle Size: Obviously, a large SUV is going to fare better in an accident than a tiny smart car. Choose a larger vehicle to offer your teen more security.
  • Safety Features: Fortunately, safety technologies are rapidly advancing. Choose a model with the latest safety features (e.g. anti-lock brake systems, backup cameras, adaptive headlights) to best protect your teen.

Another crucial component of protecting your teen is adding him or her to your auto insurance policy. To get the right Texas coverage for your new driver, contact VGW Walker Insurance today.
