10 years ago they still offered a good student discount. Another thing that will save money is if they don't have their own cars. Sharing a car between them or just using what you have will save too. The sportier the car the more the insurance will be. new car vs old car. Older will be cheaper and you won't have to have full coverage on it.
Our insurer didn't require insurance for the kids when they only had permits. That may have changed though. Once they had their licenses, they had to pay for their insurance, their cars, gas, maintenance, and repairs. Being forced to get a job automatically cut down on the miles they drove because they had to be at work a lot of the time and not running around with the car. It worked out well, gave them spending money, and taught them responsibility and consequences. If they spent all their money and then had to park their cars till they made enough to pay the insurance, it taught them to plan ahead and save for bills, too. There was no downside to making them responsible for their bills and we felt it was a big step toward helping them become responsible adults.
Our kids didnt need insurance until they got their license. I required my kids to pay for their own insurance and half of their first car. It was cheaper by far to put them each on their own car which surprised me. Boys are more expensive than girls which made me grumble.
