I am a French student on the verge of passing my driving test, in a month.
I wonder what is the option considering this case: I'm living in England since October 2015. I am living approx. 8 miles from my Uni and I want to have a car for my daily commute. I will also be using it for short week-ends in England and sometimes to go back in France (holidays)
Should I :
- Buy a car in UK, make it insured in UK and bring it back to France during Holidays?
- Buy a car in France, make it insured in France etc.
By the way, regarding my usage, which car model would you suggest me, considering my budget is £1500-2000 just for the car, and which mileage should I be looking for?
Car insurance are cheaper in France but I don't know If I'll have to pay more if I drive in UK with a car insured in France.
Should I still go?
