Can i have some advice please?? - CarWatch
I have seen a car that I would really like to get and I am maybe viewing it at the weekend but I dont have enough money to insure it fully for the year yet. Is there a way I can get this car to mine without insuring it? or maybe insuring it for a short period?
I havent managed to find any short term insurance companies that will allow a 19 year old to insure a car short term.
As far as i know you have to have a licence for a min of 6 months to get short period insurance, How long have you had your's for? Can't you afford to pay monthly for a full year insurance?
If she's the only one on the insurance you can't drive it :P
You have to be the main driver and your mum additional driver.
Also no guarantee you'll get the car, say its rubbish when you check it out, rust, engine issues, etc
I used http://www.ecarinsurance.co.uk for a 2 month policy once. It was not cheap at £70 per month but that was more down to the insurance group of the car. There are plenty of day cover sites where it costs around £30 to insure a car for the day which is ideal if you need to pick up a privately sold vehicle and just need to get it home onto your drive.
