don't worry Flash, I'm well aware it'll cost a fortune to get him insured, & when I think back to myself as a young driver (the throttle was treated as an on/off switch :oops: ) then I'm not surprised. Not just the youngones thogh, I had my CPC training recently & was shown a dashcam video of a muppet in a scooby taking the paint off a truck bumper by trying to squeeze in too early, scooby driver at fault, contact was made (big bash down side of car) & then scooby took off at rate of knots, not wanting to trade details & not realising he was caught on camera

Steve, agreed, annihilate the lot of them

Surprisingly it can be cheaper to get Comprehensive insurance......

Some insurance companies risk assessments reckon that people who try to skimp on insurance will also skimp on maintenance and are therefore a higher risk....

Well from her point of view, putting her on the insurance just means there's various occasion YOU aren't driving - therefore less chance of an accident claim :lol:

Car insurance biggest con iv seen

Back in 2001 when I moved from London I was paying £320 on a 3 year old mondeo moving to suffolk they wanted to add £400 to the following years premium work that out

I find now you get a better deal changing companies every year
