You do not need additional insurace for a Floridian with just a learner's permit. Of course the minute they get a licence - you will need to inform your insurance company. Your insurance may double at that time. Suggestions: > Make them pass a safe driver course at school which will help lower your rates > A 3.0 (B grades) or better may reduce your rates > An online driving course cost us $90 but saved us $120 the 1st year. Check with your insurance company for details on the above.
