but could you not practise on the car in the meantime? even if you do fail it'll be good to get the practise in for next time round

Why not just sort out the insurance after you've passed? :confused:

i want to practice in the car before my test. £1000 a year is a lot of money to pay if I fail! I just want to get insured for one month so i can practice before my test.

Aren't you having lessons from a proper driving instructor? Just use their car for the test, it's so much easier.

yeah but if you fail what are you going to do then? you might as well, practise helps most people loads, i got it a couple of weeks before my second test, it helps confidence so much cos it isn't your instructor next to you

The driving instructor i was put with lives in a different town. She won't pick me up or drop me home in a one hour lesson. I can get picked up forom sixth form. It;s summer holidays now and if i have a double lesson at £42, she will either pick me up or drop me off. I was with someone else who was seriously rinsing me of all my money. It costs me a lot of money to pay for the lessons, i'm not having many during the summer as i can't afford them with my measly saturday job wages and i not going to ask my parents for the money as they just bought me a car. If i can get insured, i can practise and i really wanna drive the car!

But you get into bad habits without your instructor there to bark 'Look at your mirrors!!' at you.
