Hey my C is my first car that ive owned myself. Ive been driving my Mums Toyota Yaris for the past 3 months, nifty littly car. My insurance on that is running out near the end of this month, so im going to get insured on my Corsa when that runs out.
However, im getting some absolutly crazy insurance quotes, why? Cos im 17, anyone round my age have similar problems? Or if you know any amazing companies that insure your C cheaply give us a heads up haha

Cheers

Oh yeh, ive done pass plus, whata joke!

really just have to keep shopping around mate. being 17 means you are going to get some really high quotes. be prepared to be paying a lot for insurance!

everyone has to start sometime mate, just ring round get the lowest quote possible in a policy in YOUR name so you build up NCB. At your age you just have to take the hit

remember to put other people like your parents on your policy as well, keep your annual mileage low and don't mod the car straight away which will help to lower your premium a bit :doublethumbs:

I think he means because he is only a named driver but is the only one driving it. So he should really be the policy holder. :shrug:
correct, the technical name is "fronting". my mum's the main driver and she only drives in when it goes to the garage as she works near a vx garage so probably once a year :lol:

so what about fronting, most people do that, otherwise the insurance is ridiculous prices. also, to get good prices, youve gotta do your own quotes. no point asking people on here tbh, as it depends on alot of factors ie years of ncb if any, the area you live, the age of the main driver etc etc
some people on here live in nicer places than london, have people with alot of ncb as the main driver, and have mods declared and still get it under 1000. im with quinn so dont have to declare mods, am a named driver with 2yncb, live in london and pay 1800. ask companies as they differ for person to person. some of the 'cheap' companies are more expensive for me than others.

When I had the 1.2 16V B I was on dads name paying about £700 a year. Did that for three years. At the time the cheapest quotes I could get were £1100+ and I just didn't have the cash.

Now I got the Exclusiv, I'm paying £800 for 10 months through Admiral which I didn't think was too bad. I'm 20 with no discount , but does include the IAM test. I also saved nearly £200 by adding Dad as a named driver.

At 17 though, if you can get a good quote in your own name then go for it. But if going on your dads name is way cheaper then that could also save you money. The car might need to be registered to him tho.

I paid £1400 on a 1.0 back in the day.

Pass Plus took off £300 though so don't knock it.

Problem with pass plus is the fact it doesnt affect monthly installments at all and it apparently only lasts for a year, which isnt highly advertised when your instructor urges you to do it!
