  • Number of years licensed – the longer licensed the better
  • Gender – females usually get better rates
  • Marital Status – married drivers are consider safer
  • The city you live in – the insurers keep statistics right down to postal code of claims – you might pay more in one area than you would in another!
  • Accidents - Having an at fault accident on your driving record severly impacts your rates for as much as 6 years
  • Tickets - Having tickets on your driving record impacts your rates for 3 years
  • Payment History - missed payments and lapsed policies due to non pay can severly impact your rates
  • The type of car - insurers carry statistics on each type of car for their safety record and overall claims history
