Sorry, no but if the quotes are as astronomical as one of my colleagues here just found for his lad you might want to try another option.
He found that it ended up being cheaper putting him in a brand new Corsa 1.0S with all the airbags and wotnot, interest free over five years. After discounts it was £8940 otr with £500 worth of safety extras. Just £149/mth - No upfront or final payments.
Needs a voucher off Vauxhall website, an associate partner (lots of people), insurance was with Marmalade, 10k p.a., fully comp with a Black Box = £1800. Watch for the "Learner Driver" policies which can shaft the premiums up when he passes. Marmalade seems pretty good for youngsters he reckons and you can chat to them like normal people which is rare these days.
His thought on the new car versus some of the daft quotes they got for cheap, older cars was there'd be no maintenance issues for a long time and him and mum could be more relaxed knowing it wasn't rusty and was full of all the option spec'd extra airbags.
Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.
