He must have been a named driver. Either that or the main driver but not fully comp.

My brother had a Mini One (which is cheaper to insure than a Cooper) and it was around £1,500 - new driver, 17 years old.

My insurance for my Fiat is £1,300 or so.

Expensiveish for even middle aged experienced drivers.

Silly money for newish drivers.

And to answer the other question - After 3 years of driving I pay 650 quid for Fully comp on a 1994 VW Golf GL (1.8l)

What on earth are you driving?!

My other half is a new driver and is paying just over a grand for insurance on a 1995 1ltr Micra. Insurance is around £300 for myself and my dad on a 1.2ltr 53-plate Clio.

Yet the cheapest I can get on anything is £1600 on a 1 ltr corsa (don't own a car yet, but have just stuck a load through the comparison sites). Even then its with my dad as a named driver (he hasn't driven at all since he passed his test). If its just me on there it goes up to £1800. And thats TPFT.

I'm guessing you're 17 or thereabouts? My other half is a few years older than that, so that drops the price a little, and he also has me as a named driver which brought his insurance down by another couple of hundred pounds. The reason mine is cheap is that I've been driving for four or five years. My boyfriend got his insurance with Admiral; mine is with Tesco.

It'll come down eventually.

18 lol. Test in a little over 2 weeks (when I've put in my details on the comparison sites I've just said I've got a full licence, as I won't be getting a car before I pass). Its still annoying, but its something I've just accepted now. It annoys me though cos I've personally seen more reckless middle age drivers than I have reckless teenage drivers. There you go though - life aint fair. And I'll stop complaining now lol

Nah it's fair enough - it really irritates me that a lot of hire companies won't let me hire a car (e.g. for holidays) with over four years' driving experience simply because I'm 22 - whereas if I was over 25 I could hire a vehicle with no problems, even if I'd only passed my test the week before. It's ridiculous.

Oh well.. good luck with your test, anyway! Are you taking it in Cardiff?

The g/f is from there. Is it as bad as she says it is?

Anyway, to answer the question... around £400 for the Volvo and around £700 for the MGB V8 mods declared.
