He should get a UK license. You used to be able to exchange them, but I don't know how it works now.

That's generally not how insurance works, you need to get a quote for your specific circumstances and you don't get any advertised prices.

He is a risk, clearly.

The scheme is still in operation - an EU national resident in the UK can swap their EU licence for a UK one. Think they have to have been here a year.
