    Any tips on car insurance?

    Hi there, I've got my driving test in a couple of weeks ( not saying when aha)
    And looking to probably buy a car afterwards..
    Just been talking to the parents about car insurance though, and they've said they won't pay the high prices.
    Does anybody have any tips on how to reduce car insurance, or which companies are best to go with?
    Thanks
    Jack

    I was on my dad's insurance (9 years no claims etc) and that brought it down a lot, as for companies use [url]www.moneysupermarket.com[/url] and [url]www.confused.com[/url]

    Try ]Endsleigh they offer student discount if your a student (they are on most price comparison sites) or try ]Adrian Flux they were cheapest for my first year but arent on price comparison sites so you have to go direct.
    Alternatively ]Quinn are pretty cheap for new drivers too.

    however it is hit and miss you just have to keep getting quotes as they all have different prices depending on what car, where you live, ect.

    yeah if your in the position to have yourself as a named driver on a parents car for a while it will be alot cheaper. Also make sure you are using (or change when you renew) to a company who let you build up a no claims discount as a named driver. Some companies only let the main driver build up a no claims discount but not them all.

    Good luck for your driving test mate.....hope you pass

    Plus best to ask your parents or older family member if they will put you on as a second driver

    my advice would be to go with direct line or another company that offers no claim bonus - basically even though you are second driver you earn no claims discounts aswell

    so in the long run when you come to insure on your own you have some no claims discount already

    Insurance fronting and therefore insurance fraud - if the car is yours and you are the main driver, your parents must not be the policy holder and main driver. Named driver NCB is also only valid for the insurer you earned it with since it is not a real NCB.

    elephant used to be good for young drivers....also, it's worth considering a classic car as not only are the cool but insurance can be v. cheap - when i was 18 i had a beetle and it only cost about 500 quid to insure when normal crappy cars like ren 5s etc where over £1k
