    Just drive without insurance until you're 18. Chances of you getting caught 1/356. Chances of you having accident if you're a competant driver with a full license are low (IF you drive carefully, off motorways/duel carriages]
    Plus you're probably nearly 18 and you wont be driving every single day, £1000s not worth it.
    Most stupid advice ever given.

    The days of driving without insurance and getting away with it are over, even if you live in the sticks..

    Police have too much technology nowadays and are targetting motorists anyway.

    Also in regards to fronting, its all ******** scaremongering. Insurance companies are thieving *******s, if you are clever there are a few ways of getting very cheap insurance or driving with insurance (but your not really insured at all.)

    What car will you have with the doubled horsepower ?
    Same as Initiation, I drive (drove) a VW Beetle.

    Originally it had a 36bhp (I think) engine, the 1641cc engine I've put in it with a few mods should be good for 60, maybe 70bhp

    When I was 17 the bill was about £700 on a 1.5 litre convertible.

    Footman James was the broker.
    Triumph Spitfire 1500 was the car.

    Cheapest I can get is £1234.44 with Quinn Direct with an old corsa. If anyone got theirs cheaper than this, for pretty much any old banger which won't cost any more than a grand absolute maximum, please tell.
    :eek: thats insane! My corsa's an 06, and I'm on fully comp for less than £500. I'm 18 though, but I havent passed my test yet. Direct line ftw!

    I thought you meant around 200 BHP. You won't even be able to get to 100MPH

    You're a girl! Girls get way cheaper insurance!

    Feminists campaign for equal salaries but you don't see them talking about their car insurance!

    Impossible.

    Coincidentally enough, I was looking at insurance quotes for myself yesterday. I'm 19 (passed since Feb this year), and as a named driver on both Confused.com and Comparethemarket.com I was unable to get a quote any lower for a 1.2 Corsa than £2100 fully comp. I did however find that I could get it down to about £1600 with Third Party, Fire and Theft. :confused:

    But your not telling the truth are you If you get caught they can cancel the insurance if you try to make a claim. What car is it?

    That's idiotic advice, I do hope nobody listens to you at all. You'll have great fun if you cause an accident and thus the death of another motorist, I'd rather not be leveed with the cost of compensation.

    Classic is about the only way to do it, but a lot of the time that is paired with increased running costs, thus balencing it out to a degree.

    Then you might want to persuade the rest of your gender to cut down on the recklessness!

    That's rather crazy that since I'm a girl, my insurance is less than half of what it would be if I was a guy!
