    But you're just a named driver... it's not your policy.
    To be fair the OP is ambiguous. "my mum as named driver and me as second driver" could mean anything, imo. To me that is saying both his mum and himself are named drivers.

    Ah, sorry. Missed that. I'm guessing the OP means his mum as the main driver and him as a named driver. In which case you're right :p:

    Perhaps the OP could clarify in order for us to better help him? Is it your car, or a family members on which you are going on their policy? Either way if you want insurance whilst learning, the linkage I gave is £80odd /28 days, and then £60odd /28 days if you renew, at which point you can chose to only renew for a week or 3 months.

    P.S. Mr Blobby pic....

    Direct line was by far the cheapest for me.

    Yes that's what I meant, My mum is the named driver, she got a quote of 280 quid and then when you put me as named driver, the quote shoots up by 2 grand, this is with Direct Line.

    I don't own a car yet but I got the quote on a similar car to what I intend on getting

    Are you gonna be the main driver? If so, try putting yourself as the main driver and your mum as a named driver. It may not be as cheap, but it will be more truthful :p:

    The quote from Direct Line is probably as good as you're gonna get. I'm with Direct Line at the moment in my first year of driving as the sole driver of the car at an extortionate £2400. And that was by far the best quote I received from anyone.

    I'm getting ridiculous quotes of up to 4000. So I decided to try with my dad as the main driver, we got it to 1100 but then found that he can't use his no claims bonus on another policy?! So the quote has gone to 3500. Its laughable. On the phone he was told the fact I just passed my test and have no driving experience (usually the case for first time drivers who need insurance) that I wont find much cheaper.

    Is this the norm?!

    When I was trying to get insurance on my 1.2 Corsa last month (my dad as the main driver, me as a named driver), we were getting silly quotes, hitting £3000 for an £850 car. Then we gave Churchill a call and they offered £1250 for the year, or £1300 if you pay monthly. We snapped it up straight away.

    btw, this was with no no claims on my dad's policy as he's already got that on his main car with Tescos (who quoted me £1800) and me with no Pass Plus, so it's pretty cheap.

    Bro, the phones are shut now as its Saturday evening but we're going to try this tomorrow. If this works out I owe you big time, seriously! These quotes so far have been nothing short of diabolical. These prices have cleared up my ignorance of why so many young people on the road drive with no insurance these days when you're getting quotes of 3k before you have even purchased a bloody car.

    The only down side is that my dad is with another insurance, so I doubt his no claims will be in effect which may pretty much do nothing for me. His current insurer wont allow any second drivers unless they're over 25. (Again, policys like this are poor, as I've not even got on the road yet but my age prevents me from certain policys)

    Well it finished, sorted the cheapest I could get was 2k. Me as the owner/single driver. I guess thats the going rate for a new driver, 20 year old male in a major city.

    Sucks, but everybody is in the same boat I guess.

    How did you get that quote at 17? I just got quoted £7k for a 1.2 clio. I must be filling it in incorrectly or something.

    Some insurers are a bit gay TBH, give Direct Line and Churchill a try

    I even had to double take on the 'drive other cars on 3rd party'.
    Just to let you know, Quinn do this with NO restrictions on the condition the cars not owned by you. You don't have to be a certain age or anything - you don't even need to call and tell them what your driving.
