    are you teaching them, when my partner gave me lessons he just put me on his insurance then when i passed i had to ring and they changed it.

    tbh i dont think its worth paying for the insurance,cheaper to pay for driving lessons,will probably be 800+ depends on person and car obviously,just so you know:
    you have to someone with the person at all times that has been driving for 3 years + and has no points i think,cant go on motorways and have to have l plates

    maybe go on go compare,compare the market

    Yeah, but he is a 17 year old student so it would probably be substaintially high on the current insurance. He's going to take lessons with instructor after he's had a bit of experiance on the road so only need it for a month or so.

    Most places are about 100 pound for a month for provisional insurance last time i checked.Then after he's used to driving around he can do the rest with an instructor.

    Sometimes it's better for them to be taught by an instructor because bad habit's kick in and are hard to change.

    Yeah i agree.But i wanted to teach him general driving before he went with an instructor.100pounds would only be 5 lessons worth of driving with an instructor and i dont think he would get very far.If i can teach him how to drive , well the basics , then the intstructor can teach him all the rest.

    if you want my opinion... i'd suggest get him to pass his theory first, then let him have some lessons with the instructor second. then you can take him driving too as he continues his lessons.

    the fact he has passed his theory will mean he will know the rules first and can apply for a practical whenever he's ready

    we used them for a month, just to boost his confidence on the road, with me sat beside him, he was still having lessons as well, helped him immensely, he passed 1st time 2 weeks ago, & now the hunt is on for insurance that is less then £3000, I really feel for the youngsters these days !!!
    all the best to him http://www.captivebredreptileforums.co.uk/images/smilies/thumbs_up_smiley.gif

    Yeah theory first.But what im thinking about is the first few lessons with an instructor.The intstructor will teach him basic driving so if in that one month i can teach him the basic stuff , and get him used to driving then after the month he can go on and finish it off with the instructor.

    My insurance went down when I added my girlfriend with only provisional licence.
