My insurance is £647. I drive a Peugeot 206 and i'm 26. I have had my licence for 4 years but not driven until recently so have no claims bonus which is why I think its so much.

When you drive you learn that the stereotype of "women drivers" isn't an inaccurate depiction. So the fact that their insurance is so much cheaper really disgusts me. I can't wait for when things are equal.

I always found it was cheaper to have my own policy than to be a named driver on someone elses. Try that.
Anyway, if you are looking to be a named driver on the insurance, then make sure you are actually only a named driver. If you are actually the main driver of the car, and you say you are only a named driver (putting someone else as the main driver) then its fronting and its illegal.

This generalisation really rustles my jimmies. I don't wanna pay a ****ing fortune in car insurance just because some other ****ers crash their car too ****ing much. Otherwise I'd buy a car right now.

Seat Leon 1.6 S from 2003. I was always on my mother's insurance:

17 - £2200 with Aviva
18- £2100 with LV
19 - £1200-£1300 or so with LV. I am at uni, so I just do it as a temporary measure. Basically £3-£3.50 a day or so for 2 days up to 6 weeks, but a £10 admin charge is on top of that for the entire term. So a weekend costs £17.

I didn't pay for the first two years, my parents covered it then. I know some parents who don't pay for it at all, and others who buy their kids a car and insurance. One of my friends got a brand new car (and customised it) and their parents bought it for them. I'm still incredibly grateful that I got insurance!

For this third year, I am at university, so I don't drive, so I don't pay anything. At Christmas I might insure myself with LV on the temporary insurance, and it'll cost about £55. It depends, I have a job waiting for me at home which pays about £45 a shift, so just working one weekend out of the two weeks will make it profitable.

2006 1.25l Ford Fiesta,

25 - £956.00 with Admiral
26 - £577.00 with Quote me happy.

Got parents as named drivers as well which brought down the price, at least until I've built up a bit more NCB. Was around £1,500 without them if I tried when I was 25.

I'm 21. My car insurance this year was £1100, fully comp. I have a 2010 Toyota Aygo, 1l.

Last year I had 2002 Renault Clio, 1.2l. My insurance was £1800 TPFT.

Don't have parents on my policy because they don't drive. I have my BF on my current policy but it brought it up by about £10 lol.

Im 21, VW Lupo 1.0, insurance £810

I think the cheapest car insurance wise you can get is a 10-15 year old vauxhall corsa, either the 1.2 or the 1.0 12v.

I'm 22, have a fully comp 2005 Vauxhall Corsa 1.0ltr for £1003 per year.

It's rather depressing, especially since I can be insured on a brand new 62 plate Corsa for £750

:eek: Woah woah woah, how are you guys getting such cheap insurance policies? I'm 22 and passed last month, the cheapest quotes i'm getting are at least £1600 with Co-Cop Young Drivers and that's with fairly new cars which I cannot afford in the first place. If i try it wih older cars which I cannot afford, the insurance shoots up to at least £1900 on Co-Op and over £2,500 from 'normal' insurers. :mad:
