Do Shop Around 

Insurance rates can change a lot during the course of a year. This is why it is important that you shop around for new insurance coverage annually. Few people do this, and they might be missing out on important savings. It is also a good idea to shop around because different life events can affect how much you will pay for insurance. If you have recently gotten married, divorced, or purchased a home, it could influence your auto insurance costs. 

Do Add New Drivers Quickly

If you need to add a new driver to your policy, be sure to do this as soon as possible. If you fail to add a new driver to a policy, and that person will be driving the vehicle on a regular basis, it could put you at financial risk if something goes wrong. 

New drivers need to be added if you have teens who are starting to drive in your home and will be using your vehicles. New drivers also need to be added any time you have agreed to let anyone use your car on a regular basis. 

Don’t Let Insurance Lapse

Allowing your auto insurance to lapse can put you at financial risk and could have legal consequences as well, depending on where you live.
