I am a new driver, 22 years old from London and commute to uni in Essex. My insurance quotes are coming up to £2500-£3000. Is this right? I was expecting something under £2000.

I think it's fair to say that's right...

Unlucky dude, the excitement of driving for the first time soon fades when you see those prices doesn't it.

It might be your home postcode. Have you added a parent as a named driver? What sort of car is it?

When I got mine, the insurance was £2,400 for my 2015 Ford Fiesta. But I am travelling 20,000 miles a year. before that I had s 2005 Vauxhall Corsa, which was £2,500 for 5,000 miles. So sorry to say that those prices are normal, when my renewal comes up in July, it should be around £1 000 less, when comparing on comparison websites. You will just have to stick it out sadly

Insurance in London is generally alot higher than the average insurance you have around elsewhere.
Its probably to do with your postcode and possibly due to other factors such as crime rate in the area.
