    I have alot:')
    I'm 17, not even started my lessons but 18 in December. I own a provisional licence, and I'm capable of driving around car parks etc but nothing fancy. I haven't even sat my theory!
    1.) I live in a boarding house at school for 5-6 out of 7 days a week most of the year, which is situated at the top of a hill and has many other cars parked there, compared to my own home which has no garage and is in a flood risk area due to my dad's car being written off after the sea raged a few years back. Do I write down my school as my address?
    2.) How the hell do i make my insurance not be £10,000 a year?!?!?! (Comparethemarket.com is showing this-_-)
    3.) Intensive crash course vs normal lessons?
    Any other info would be fab!

    No write down your home as the school will only be your address for a year more or so..

    What car are you looking at?! Usually you'd be looking around 1500-3000 for insurance depending on the car and stuff like that

    Normal lessons...Crash courses have a way higher after crash rate because you haven't been taught properly.

    What car? Anything over a 1.4 and you are starting to get into these high prices.
