Congratulations...might be worth investing in a pass plus course? My instructor was qualified to do it years back and it didn't cost all that much to do - good experience too.

Quote wise...

I actually went with Direct Line first time round, ended up costing circa £800 for a 1.2 Polo...

mum and dad are in their old ages lol, neither of them drive...
only my 2 bro's and me!

i wanted to join his, but he's with direct line - (i dont like them, cant do any sort of mods e.g stereo etc? or they dont insure you!)

oldest bro hes in a diff country, so he isnt covered in the UK atm...

ill keep looking till i find something..

thanks for the shout out though. =]

Sounds a good price, my 17 year old son paid £3k for fiesta diesel 1997...
#10
Well done hunny x
#11
Congratulations!! :thumbsup:
The best price we had to have our 17 son on our policy was from NFU (National Farmers Union), he had an accident about 3 months after passing his test and they were brilliant, on shopping around for a new policy for the new car (old one was written off) they were still the cheapest!! Even after making a claim with them.:-D
#12
Congratulations, well done :thumbsup:
#13
Personally I'm amazed it's that cheap. A 17 year old driving a 1.9 Seat ibiza will be sending off alarm bells at every insurance company going.

Congrats on passing by the way :thumbsup:
#14
Well done.
You aren't going to get cheap quotes for a 1.9 turbo diesel when you're 17 no way!
My advice would be to sell it and buy a car with a smaller engine.
#15
Thank you all,
im on that website given quotezone but its reallly annoying! keeps timing out!
only finds like 4 quotes out of the 40 odd different companies!

Thank you all !!! =]=]

#18

:thumbsup:
#19
Congrats

i pay £950 as a named driver on a provisoinal on a 1.2 ibiza 52 plate, so 1.9 is going to be pretty deer, i save like 300 quid having my insurance on provisonal, but i would also advise gettin a smaller engined car, atleast till you bout 19, in about a year hopefullt get a leon or something shoud have 2 years ncb by then though. well done btw, i passed 3rd time.
#21
:thumbsup: Congratulations - drive carefully and that no claims will soon mount up
#22
my daughter passed in July went with Admiral and it costs her £680 for fully comp for a Vauxhall Corsa 1.4 SXi Sport

Congratulations on passing your test, my one was cancelled today due to the icy conditions :(

I found Admiral/Elephant to be consistently cheap with me although with a very high excess, unfortunately it is expensive to start off as a young driver.

well done

Try getting someone older, such as mum named on the policy this can bring it down, also it helps if u have more cars in the household.

Just to bring u down (on a nice note) I pay about £220 for a 3 old E class merc and my wife has a 57 plate BMW 120d auto for £240 with no claim protection. and we live in london.

well done:thumbsup:

Congrats!
#29
well done you !:thumbsup:

must agree with quinn direct.. when i past my test last year they were £500 cheaper than anywere else on my 1.4 brava. must say tho... u really should get a smaler car. 1.9 is far too much ... (unless your stupidly rich and dont mind paying lots) . would advise anything below 1.4 as it is cheaper tax and is much lower on insurance.
#31
Thanks for all the help people!
Im going to give admiral / bell.co.uk etc

thanks everyone!!! :D:D
#32
Give Swiftcover a go as well, they were cheapest for me last year, but for my first insurance policy I went with Elephant.
banned#33
congratulations x
#34
My daughter got hers with Quinn Direct & it was over £450.00 cheaper than anywhere else she had tried.

Her 1.0 Corsa was only £760.00 to insure & thats on a provisional license.

Getting a smaller car will reduce the cost of your insurance premium drastically.
#35
Congrats :)

I was supposed to have mine on the 10th but it was cancelled at the last minute because of bad weather (even though there is no way it should have been cancelled and my instructor has advised me to dispute it)

Not been given my new date yet

That sounds odd, when you say it shouldn't have been cancelled was the weather not bad? I had exactly the same issue, I had a test (Direct access, class A motorbike) booked at half one in the afternoon and was phoned by the DSA telling me it was cancelled but they offered me a new test date at the same time. This test shouldn't have been cancelled as the weather was one of the better days in the month and far better than the previous test conditions. My instructor assumed I had cancelled because I was unwell as he hadn't heard of the DSA cancelling tests all day first thing in the morning as they usually evaluate again at midday.

I phoned the DSA back to them explaining that I believed there was an error as my instructor had checked the roads himself and found them to be had...I was told by the call centre that the examiner had assessed the state of the roads and decided that they were unsafe, his decision was final.

On the rebooked test (which I failed anyway) it was the same examiner I was meant to have had and it turned out he didn't know the test had been cancelled, he had been waiting for me to turn up and had done other tests that day. Clearly the DSA had made an error and I've got a form to claim back expenses.

On my third test attempt they cancelled again although this time it was genuine, my instructor had spoken to the examiner direct and he had checked the routes but couldn't find a safe one. It was -5 in the morning and there was a mix of ice and water on the road so they were right to cancel it however again they rebooked it on the spot.

The rebooked test was yesterday and it wasn't looking good as there was so much water on the road. Went onto a major roundabout which had two lanes completed flooded plus a junction onto the dual carriageway was as well. The test did go ahead and thankfully past this time.

Good luck getting your test sorted.

John
