    That's gonna be very expensive!

    You need to get lots of quotes to see what's cheapest; don't just go with wahtever quote you get first.

    If you get added to your parents insurance it might be cheaper in the short term, but you won't get any no claims discount so when you get insurance in your own name it will be more expensive.

    Tthe Audi tt is in about group 18 for insurance and a lot of places probably won't insure it to under 21s so the Mazda6 is probably a better idea, although the insurance groups will still be relatively high. I got a lovely little mazda2 a few months ago which costs about £600 a year insurance for my mother as main driver and me and my dad named (I'm currently a learner but should take test soon if i get around to booking a cancellation- can't wait til october!) good luck x

    You'll get a cancellation! Just keep phoning....a friend of mine took her test 3 times in 2 months from getting cancellations. I still haven't phoned for one cos I'm scared of bringing it really forward then failing...but october 13th (present test date) is too far away. I want to pass now!!!!! xxxx
