    How much actually is the insurance for a 17-year-old boy? Some people seem to ahve been put on their parents for £50 whilst for other people it would cost them £1000... so confusing :confused:
    The insurance is risk assessed on the youngest driver or highest risk (Acciedents/Convictions) Just because you go on your parents insurance it maybe cheaper than taking your own out but that is most probably basising it on the fact your parents have accrewd a number of years no claims discount.
    Advice to you is take the insurance out under your name, which maybe expensive now but over the years you will benefit.

    Damn i feel like i still work there !!!

    Dohh !!!

    Why is Manchester more expensive than anywhere else in the country?? Surely it's just as dangerous to drive in... Is this a big rip-off by the insurance companies? :mad:
    But in Manchester ur car is probably more likely to be broken into lol :rolleyes:
    Its such a biatch living here!

    Its because Manchester has more robbers, the cities are always more expensive, don't worry though, Liverpool, London and Newcastle also have high rates

    Also some of the posher post codes in Manchester have high rates because there is a lot of thefts from drives and stuff.

    Also their a lot of scallies in Manchester so there is probably more incidents involving young drivers. My dad pays £800 a year insurance for his 9 year old 1.6 Zetec escort, thats with a 75% no claims discount!

    Yes but not involving cars, its just not nice driving in Manchester all you do is get stuck in traffic. In my local area is just one big traffic jam.

    The ironic thing is when I was at school I thought I would be one of them people who left school at 16, got a job etc and had more money than the stupid idiots staying on. Now I am 21, at university, got no money. My life is so ironic.

    going back to driving schools... get a personal recommendatoin from someone who thinks like you. i went with BSM for a while and my instructor was terrible buti hadnt got the guts to ask if i could switch instructors, as some people i knew had really good BSMinstructors. they also made me piss around on a simulator car for 2 hours b4 i could drive which was really pointless and expensive. i am now with a very popular local instructor which my friend had and doing a lot better

    i'm another to thoroughly agree with getting a self employed insturctor. I learnt to drive with one and it was only £15 an hour. The guy took a real interest in his job, which he had been doing for about 13 years. I couldn't have asked for a better teacher and it was alot cheaper than bsm or aa.

    None, I had it booked but family problems meant canceling it, I went for a few weeks without having lessons and was so much happier so that few weeks ended up being years.
