car insurance for 17 year old?!?

I am currently doing my driving lessons, but I’ve been looking at car insurance to get an idea, but all of them are quoting me £4000/£5000, and i defiantly can’t afford that.. What cars are cheapest to insure and what car insurance is the cheapest? PLEASE HELP!
Also I am in the UK..

Administrator answers:

Last year, the average cost of car insurance in the U.K for a 17 year old driver, was £4,200. It is going to go up in 2012.

It doesn’t matter what car you buy or who you get insured with, you are going to pay at least £4,000.

If you cannot afford that, then you cannot afford to drive. That is the cold harsh reality for teenagers these days. Many people your age simply don’t drive, because like you, they can’t afford to insure a car.

And Mark’s suggestion is called “fronting”, which is illegal.

William asks…

How much is car insurance for a 17 year old male in maryland????????!!!?!?!?! PLEASE ANSWER!!!?

I got my license today lol….I need car insurance because I have an internship starting on the 29th…does anyone know a cheap but good/decent insurance policy??????PLEASE HELP!!!

Administrator answers:

Congratulations on your license. Several questions need to be asked to give you a good answer.

First, as a minor (under 18) you will need a parent or guardian to sign for you to even have a car in your name. Secondly are you currently covered under a policy, such as your parent’s insurance? If not, can they add you to their policy?

The cheapest way to get coverage will be to be added to a parent’s policy. If that is not possible, you will find that the only coverage available to you is through MAIF (Maryland Auto Insurance Fund) which is the state run insurer of last resort. They are expensive.

Help with insurance for 17 year old male.?

Hi there,
I have been looking around for car insurance for weeks and weeks, i have just passed my test and looking to buy a car. The cheapest quote i have found is £1600 but this is for a Rover Mini City.. Although this insurance is cheap for a 17 year old, to buy a decent reliable Mini is going to cost around £1500-£2000.. Is there anyone who could give me the best deal to go for ( Cost of car, Insurance, Tax, Reliability etc. ) as i am still in school (moving onto college) and can only get a job at the weekends.

Cheers, Arran.

Hi Arran,

I work for an insurance company,

First off that is a great quote you have had, we are seeing premiums above £2k for people buying cars only worth £1000, the best advice to keep all your costs down are as follows:

*Buy a cheap car £500-£1500
*Small engine size 900cc-1200cc
*Get a car roughly 7-10yrs old

All first cars are going to be a bit ‘ratty’ my first car was a Mini Metro 900cc and worth about £100 and i paid £1600 7yrs ago, but it got me safely from A to B and for the first 12 months that’s all i wanted,

Once you have 1yrs no claims bonus, you can look at getting a vauxhall corsa or Peugeot 106 as these cars are cheap to insure, cheap to buy and cheap to run (petrol, tax).

I recommend going on auto-trader and looking at cars in your local area, find ones you like then go on one of the comparison websites and go through quotes for all the vehicles you find.

Best of luck.

Ben

Sandy asks…

Does anybody know where i can get very cheap car insurance?

i am a 17 year old driving who own a Tax Exempt Landrover. I have been quoted £3000 just about everywhere. I know that this should not be the price for a car made in 1972.
could anybody help?

Administrator answers:

There is no such place. You need to simply keep getting quotes.
