    I have just bought a car at an auction and I am picking it up on Monday. I have only recently passed my test therefore I am not insured on any cars as of yet.
    Therefore my mum is going to drive it back for me as she has fully comp insurance and can drive other people's cars with their permission.

    Although...as the car was bought at an auction, it is therefore no longer insured in anyone's name and me, the owner isn't insured on it either.

    So is my mum covered by her insurance to drive the car back from the auction place back to mine? Or would I have to insure it myself for my mum to then be covered to drive it?

    your mum's fully comp only insures her to drive other cars if those cars have insurance of their own. You will need to insure the car - you could maybe look into your mum getting a 1 day insurance thing til you find out the best deal for you though

    just shop around now to find cheap insurance and drive it back your self, this is what i did. also calling up is the best way to get quotes as you can talk to them and ask them if the can give you come discount. also call up your mums insurance company they might be the cheapest as you already got a policy with them.:yes:

    Hey, thanks that's what I'm trying to do now. My mum has been with directline for over 10 years and all my friends are with them, they seem to be the cheapest. My friend has a car with the same insurance band as me, her dad has been with direct line for years as well, lives in the same area etc etc and yet her insurance is only £750 including break-down cover and the cheapest quote I can get with any car with direct line is just over £1000!

    If I go on confused.com (which I won't be buying my insurance from!) gives me a quote ofonly £840.

    Ahhh

    The car would need to be insured to start with for that to work
