Your child is all grown up and getting the first set of keys to freedom! This time of life is so exciting for your child and maybe a little bit scary for you. Not only is your child going to be on the road with other drivers, which can keep you up at night all on its own, but now you’ve also got to find a car for your new driver that’s affordable to insure. We’ve all heard horror stories of how expensive it can be to insure a new driver, and you don’t want to fall victim to a budget-busting car insurance bill.

Fortunately for you, there are plenty of cars on the market today that are affordable to insure. Here are the top five most affordable cars to insure for your new driver.
