    I'm 17 and have only been driving a month, failed to send a photocopy of my licence to my insurance company within 14 days due to being away and now they have cancelled my policy. They are only returning a fraction of my premium and now I am finding it impossible to get a quote from any other insurer due to having a cancelled policy on my record.
    Such a stupid mistake but is there any way I can get another insurance policy by explaining it was a document error not dangerous driving??

    Have you actually went into any insurance places physically?

    I haven't yet, I have just spoken to them over the phone and they say my age combined with this mistake makes the price too unreasonable to quote. I am going to contact an insurance broker but I'm still concerned the price will be ridiculous.
