    You are talking s**t.
    Worked for me when I was a teenager. Although I was older than 17, and my first premium was far higher.

    You sound like an utterly charming human being.

    The trick is to get a car and put the owner of the car under your parents, then insurance put the parents as the main drivers then you'll be added as named driver for 'social use' and yeah your insurance will defo be undee £1000. I got insured the day after I passed and on a 1.1l small car was £800 altogether. After my first year of driving and no accidents etc the insurance price has been dropped to £400

    Some will (Admiral for example) but you can only use the no claims bonus if you inside yourself as a main driver through them. Generally no you can't!
