    My mini was £800 to insure but it depends on so many factors..If you live in a dodgier area then you just have to suck it up and pay higher costs

    The chances are very very slim that you'll get insurance under £1000 as a new driver, especially being 17, insurance companies hate insuring 17 year olds therefore it's actually a bit cheaper when you turn 18.

    My first insurance cost me £1,200 and I was 18 and my car is a Renault megane, wasn't too bad however the cheapest cars to insure are generally the toyota aygo, C1 and 107 city cars.

    It's hard to get cheap insurance so young because so many young drivers crash and have accidents, meaning it gets cheaper as you get older. You'll have to search around a lot and you might find something, but it seems like it'll be hard.

    "Cheap car insurance" and "17 year old" are pretty much mutually exclusive . Look at cars that have a low insurance group - this will usually be small hatchbacks or city cars (A, B or possibly C-segment to use the official terms) with small engines. Try different parameters such as insurance type (fully-comprehensive or third-party only - the latter doesn't give you as good coverage but isn't always cheaper!) and excess (how much you have to pay when you make a claim - the larger this is, the lower the premium will be, but it's a risk). It also depends quite a lot on where you live, so while some people on here may boast about their three-figure quote, it isn't feasible for everyone.
