Hi! I passed my test back in December. I already had a car as my mum gave me her Vauxhall corsa when she got a new car. But I know a lot of people have corsas and they tend to be good first cars. My insurance is a little over £1000 per year, with insurance you have to mess around with white to see what will get you the cheapest price. Putting your parents on it as maned drivers, black boxes etc. I also don’t have a black box myself. I’m with admiral and as far as I’m aware, they’re the cheapest for new drivers.

In terms of insurance, how long is a piece of string? Depends heavily on the area, your car, mileage etc.
Can be anything between £900 - 2500.

In terms of cars, you can get a Corsa, but finding a decent one is like looking for a kneedle in a haystack, a lot of them have been used and abused IME. It's better to get insurance quotes before deciding on a car, a Corsa isn't necessarily going to be the cheapest or best car you can get.

Did you include your name on her insurance?

All are engineered by the same guys and made in the same factories, so it doesn't matter. Pick any the looks of you like, and is in good condition (mechanically).
