So I passed my driving test today and now need to buy proper car insurance. I’ve been looking on several price comparison websites, and the cheapest always have shocking reviews, saying that the telematics box gives false info and people are forced to cancel their policy or have their premium increased. Just wondering if anyone can recommend a decent insurance company which does not rip off new drivers?? thanks

Do not go telematics. There is no such thing as a good telematics box or telematics company.

The savings you gain will be completely outstrip by you intentionally or unintentionally breaching speed limits, curfew times (if any) etc.

Save up for non-telematics policies.

No recommendation is any good for you - use a comparison website and pick the cheapest non telematics policy.
