    17yr old female. Passed test on tuesday 8th sept and have a small 3 door car that i want to get insured on (with my parents).

    Veryy few places seem to allow me to have a black box (??).

    prices coming up are £6,000 onwards

    I thought these would be around £1,000 - £2,000

    Depends what car you have. Many boy racer cars match that description, as do many regular cars. Have you thought about doing an advanced driving course?

    Oh wow, I was expecting you to be upset about £1-2k prices but that's weird.
    Have you looked on compare the market and ensured all details are correct?
    What size is car engine?
    Could it be a dodgy area it's kept; parents with claims; over exaggerated mileage etc? Also registering car in your name can bring it down.
    Even my 17yo brothers was less than £1.5k with a black box!
    Also try endsleigh; Tesco black box directly
