Additional rates and observations
Some additional rates and savings tips regarding the cost to insure a car in North Dakota include:
- Earn policy discounts to save money. Discounts may be available if the insured drivers work in certain occupations, are good students, take a defensive driving course, sign their policy early, or many other policy discounts which could save the average driver as much as $4 per year.
- High-risk car insurance is expensive. For a 40-year-old driver, the requirement to buy a high-risk car insurance policy could result in a rate increase of $1,804 or more per year.
- Negligent driving raises car insurance rates. Multiple at-fault accidents raise rates, potentially up to $2,098 per year for a 20-year-old driver and even as much as $458 per year for a 60-year-old driver.
