    Use box insurance! It's honestly so much cheaper, and there's no real reason not to considering all it does it verify you're not a complete moron on the road.

    You might want to consider doing Pass Plus as well, since I hear that can reduce insurance prices.

    Do you have any "endorsements"? (e.g. speeding fines, DUI etc.) since that will increase insurance prices too.

    Pass plus does not reduce insurance prices. A lot of companies dont accept it and the ones that do dont knock enough off to make it worth doing it.

    And i wouldnt touch a black box with a barge pole either.
