Teen Insurance

The average teen knows zilch about car insurance, but that might change soon. High-school students in Pennsylvania recently became the first to have an interactive “Insurance 101” course as part of their curriculum. The course module is now available to teachers nationwide.

How it works: The course was designed by the Pennsylvania Insurance Department along with the National Association of Insurance Commissioners. It shows students how driving decisions and other choices can cost or save them money on insurance.

For example, students learn that by hitting the books instead of, say, playing videogames with friends, they could boost their grades and qualify for a good student discount on insurance.


The “Insurance 101” course module is publicly available for download here.
