Insurance rates on teen drivers

Our 17-year-old will be driving his car to school this year, but the insurance seems pretty high. Are there some tips to finding a lower cost? Also, he'll have a part-time job. I think he should help to pay for his gas. His dad doesn't care. What do you think?Our daughter's uncle gave her an older car, which we thought was great.
