So I have been driving for 6 months now, I was with the company 'Insurethebox' so I had a black box fitted that monitored my speed, breaking etc. My policy has now been cancelled due to speeding and I'm receiving quotes for £7,918 and I'm wondering if there is anything I can do that will bring these quotes down? Any suggestions will be great!

Check Endsleigh - they do student car insurance with significant discounts
If that doesn't work for you, try searching:

I 100% agree I am in the wrong. Is there any chance they would let me stay with them but increase my policy price? Expecting someone to "stay off the roads for 5 or so years" when they're 20 years old and are now dependant on their car for commuting to work, etc is a bit much.
Why were you speeding knowing you had a black box?
There's no chance you'll get cheap insurance now for at least a couple of years. As it's been cancelled you've also lost your no claims for this year (As you haven't had a full year as it got cancelled). You'll just have to pay the really expensive price for it. Probably would've just been cheaper to pay more and not get a black box..
Try First Alternative. Do you have any no claims bonus?
A friend of mine had her insurance cancelled too - she was on a black box but made too many journeys at unfavourable times e.g. late at night.
I think she was able to negotiate a better deal over the phone rather than via any comparison websites - we live in an urban area and her new quote after the cancelled insurance worked out at about £2,000. She was a relatively new driver too - she'd probably had her license for about 4 months.
