At 21 with a highly modified 16V MK2 cooper I paid around £600 with Adrian flux and I had my licence a matter of weeks. Try Graham Sykes.

And in the unfortunate incident you have an accident you won't be insured! Which means your one of the people causing other people's insurance to go up because you don't wont to live with in the law!!

What you mean is you have no insurance....

You must think insurance Companies are stupid why do you think they ask to confirm all details are correct, because if they find out they are not you're on your own as your insurance will be declared null and void.

so you have got a highly modified engine worth a load of cash and you have insured it as a 1098 worth about 50p and you think YOU are conning the insurance company? So if it gets nicked what do you think they are going to replace it with?

I would get that sorted asap. It's just as likely to get pinched standing around than get in an accident on the road.

 

You might as well save your money altogether and not insure it for what that policy is worth

Due to an unfortunate incident involving a speed camera, it has now become even harder to find decent insurance prices. Therefore forcing my hand to start my restrain plans sooner than intended. thanks for the advice anyways guys.
