Some drivers will be classified as high risk if they break of traffic regulations and rules, or are new to driving, particularly young motorists, people over the age of 70 and people who newly get a license. Other high risk drivers are considered to have bad credit ratings, and those individuals who have a history of traffic tickets and DUIs. And very true, mediocre credit is a notice of high risk to most preferred insurance providers! High risk is tantamount to high insurance quotes for the same coverages . For those drivers, there are some factors to consider to lowering costs and preventing inflated prices in the future.

In most states including Illinois you can Google "[your State] Automobile Insurance Plan] and you will be prompted with website where you can inquire furtaher about the State plan. In the state sponsored auto plans, all car insurance companies operating in the state will be obligated to pick a number of high risk individuals who are rejected by other insurance companies, or who were approved but at a premium that is higher than what the pool offers.
