That's about right Larry. Despite your mother's excellent record, male
drivers under the age of 25 take a tremendous hit when it comes to
insurance rates. They are factoring in YOUR age as well as her age and

fees, insurance rate increases, etc....
Good Luck! (perhaps you can get a good quote from lowermybills.com)
