These little-known factors could be driving up the cost of your car insurance in Virginia

8News has uncovered two things that could mean you pay more for car insurance — and it has nothing to do with your driving record.

Chesterfield County resident Teresa Williams drives a few miles each day to her job and to run errands for her family.

“I have a perfect driving record, never had a ticket before in my life,” says Williams.

Williams had no idea her waitressing job and high school diploma could have her paying significantly more for car insurance.

“I think it should be your driving record, your experience,” she said.​​​​​​​
