    Woah! How expensive are the insurance??? I just phoned up 4 companies since i been told that calling them i would get a cheaper deal, but freaking hell! The cheapest one i found was £1200 and that was tescos. And so i thought passing my test means i have one less thing to worry about.....

    I have a Nissan Pixo 1.0. Any female drivers out there with a small car like mine? How much and what company are you with for insurance?
    thankyou !

    Getting bored of saying this, now...
    The car is the problem. Try getting a quote for a mid sized saloon. It will likely be significantly cheaper.
    Im not saying buy a Mustang, whilst that would earn you a lot of street cred, something escort sized will do.

    Lastly, whilst 1 litre may well be sufficient on a motorbike, it certainly isn't on a vehicle that's 10 times the weight of the average Ducati.

    Judging by your sig, you are 17/18 right? To be honest, £1200 isnt actually that bad! Some people on here are paying much, much more.

    To be honest, £1200 is probably below break-even on a policy like that.
    Think about it, 20% of drivers have a crash in the first six months alone.
    You're more dangerous now than you were as a learner, because there's nobody sitting next to you to stop you doing something stupid.

    What you should do, is go do pass plus and a skidpan course. It won't save you any money at the end of the day as the courses will cost easily what you get in an insurance reduction, but you won't be quite as much of a pathetic waste of air, blood and organs as most drivers (particularly new drivers) in the UK seem to be.

    I went with tescos too. They were the cheapest for me too.
    But there isnt much we can do about insurance prices. Appart from getting no claims.
