    Females are cheaper.

    OP you probably won't get too much under 1000.

    Try second driver, it may help?

    go to direct line with your mum or dad as registered keeper and you as named driver - i'm 18 and i get my insurance for 710 quid - also depends on the car - that's with a 1.3 fiesta - and also your mum and dad have to have no claims - accidents etc

    Say it's your mums car but you drive it.
    Or if your dad/mum owns a company, say it's a company car and you work for the company. That makes it very cheap indeed!

    If you're a male you'd be lucky to get that much for a modified trolley.

    I was on my dads insurance when i was 17 and my insurance was 680 ish. Had fiesta 1.2, that was with tesco and i was a learner still. Just keep shopping around, if you can afford it up the excess a bit that usually makes it a bit cheaper. deff worth considering just being on someone elses insurance esp with cmpany like direct line bcos if you dont crash for the 3 years and then take out your own policy with them you get a no claims not all insurrance companys give named drivers no claims bonus. Pass plus takes your insurance down aswell.

    @OP

    Good luck getting insurance for under £1000! It's quite hard but it's possible. Get a classic car

    Still, if you drive the car more than she does, then it is fronting and insurance fraud.

    I'm male, and my first year of car insurance, with me as the only driver, was £600odd.

    Down to £234 now I'm 20. But it'll be up to £400 again as I'm doubling the horsepower soon.

    Then say she does.
    It will be cheaper to insure her as the main driver and you as a named driver, whether she uses it or not.

    Are your parents at an insurance company?

    usually 10% off in that case.
