Cheapest car insurance for drivers with a DUI: State Farm

State Farm, Farm Bureau and American Family have the best rates for drivers with a citation for driving under the influence on their record. Not only are full coverage rates from these three companies 47% cheaper than average, but all of the companies raise rates the same amount after a DUI and after an at-fault accident.

Cheapest car insurance for drivers with poor credit: Allstate

You could be the safest and most responsible driver in the world, but if you have a low credit score, insurers will treat you as a high-risk driver and charge you steeper rates.

Cheapest car insurance for young drivers: Farm Bureau

Young drivers in Omaha pay rates that are 334% higher than rates paid by adult drivers, our analysis found. New to the road, teenage drivers get into accidents far more frequently than experienced adult drivers and are quoted higher rates because of it.

For this reason, we urge young drivers to stay on their parents' insurance if they can. Car insurance discounts, such as a telematics program or a good student discount, are another way teen drivers can help make their premiums more affordable.

We recommend Farm Bureau to young drivers looking for cheap insurance. At $4,028 per year for full coverage, the company's average rate is 33% cheaper than the state average.
