Insurance For 17 Year Old
Posted 08 July 2016 - 03:25 PM
I have just got my full UK drivers licence and there is a nice Rover Mini Italian Job I have seen, however am really struggling with insurance quotes.
Does anyone have any suggestions of where to look or who to talk to about getting a good quote?
I have tried price comparison sites like Go Compare etc, so far best I have found is £3000 a year.
Any help would be extremely appreciated :)

Have you tried somewhere like Marmalade?
You may end up having to get a black box fitted to bring your premium down.
On,y downside is they only insure vehicle 9 years old or younger , my eldest is 17 and just passed his test, it was cheaper to get him a brand new car with free insurance, crazy times.

I have looked at them but as you said, they only insure cars less than 9 years old.
I'll have to keep looking, I have seen Marmalades new car and insurance deals just in case, but really trying for the mini haha

I paid £3100 for my first year in a Austin Metro Gta (1275) and that was with a box. This year I paid £1900 on a Ibiza FR TDI and £1800 on a Mazda mx5
Grit your teeth and find the cheapest non black box quote you can. Churchill wanted £2700 for my first year on my mums insurnce on my own car and own policy without a box and I should've took it while I could!

Usual trick, add your folks to the policy (as long as they've got clean licenses), it helps loads.

Adrian flux were the cheapest I could find. I don't think they're on price comparison sites though so you'll have to give them a call.
