 Most   insurance companies give a 1 star rating to new drivers.  If a student   has a driver training certificate, they'll give the driver a 3 star.    The driver will keep this star rating for 3 years and will increase by  1  star for every year they are claim free.  However, once a driver  puts  in an at fault claim, they go down to a zero star.  Depending on  many  factors, a person could save around $200/year in the first 3 years  by  having a driver training certificate.

The   most frequent and ideal solution is to use the car that you have been   taking lessons in. It is often the case that you will take the  practical  test in the same vehicle as instructors often use many  reference  markers, especially for parallel parking. These reference  markers are  usually car specific and as each car is different you will  feel more  confident using the same car for the test.
