    so i have to buy my own car and pay for my own insurance and everything

    so i was thinking about getting a vauxhall corsa, from 2002, 1.2l etc

    they are about £1,500

    roughly how much would insurance cost?
    how much do people pay? / what cars do you have?

    i am 17/female!

    Aviva insurance are good. I heard Tesco car insurance are good too.

    You can easily cut your insurance quote in half if you insure the car in your parents name, especially if they have a long no claims bonus, and put yourself on the car as a second driver.

    Admiral seems to be good for newly passed/young drivers right now, it's where I got mine back in October and I knew a few others since.

    The policy is in my name (3rd party ft) but adding both my parents as named drivers on it knocked it down a couple of hundred.

    Get quotes to find out.
    It would cost at least £1000 though depending on the level of cover (fully comp, third party fire and theft), where you live, insurance company, if you have others as named drivers etc.
    Tesco, elephant, admiral, and diamond are quite cheap.

    as above around 1k
    but if u find a corsa c for 1.5 k just make sure it got fsh and the miles are not too high, cuz then you will get some hanky panky from repairs
    and dont insure it under u parents when u r the main drives like some idiot said
    i pay 2k for a corsa d, which is kinda fair for a lad

    Or you could not do this and actually have valid insurance.

    I would have thought this would be the first place that people go, instead of asking on here.

    thats true, to get the cheapest, start with he comparison sites, make a list of all the insurance companies u want to call/go on website
    then from there just visit/talk to each single one untill u get the best quote
