Student discounts for car insurance

Progressive offers insurance discounts for students who maintain good grades, go to school away from home, or drive while they're a teenager. To qualify for these discounts, you'll need to be on your parents' or someone else's car insurance policy and not your own.*

  • Good student discount: We offer a discount for full-time students under the age of 23 with a B average or better. In most states, the average discount is 10%.
  • Distant student discount: If you're 22 years old or younger, go to a school that is 100 miles or more from your home, and don't have a car at school, you'll earn a distant student discount with Progressive.**
  • Teen driver discount: If you're 18 years old or younger, you qualify for this discount.†† Easy!
