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.

Alfa Romeo Mito

i got my insurance through Diamond. they weren't too expensive.. had a yaris before the mito and it was £780 3rd party fire and theft..

alfa is £600 with 1year no claims through diamond..

they also take into account pass plus if they have done that? and that took it down by like £100/£200

Try Co-op. They do a black box option for young people.
Note that premiums go up substantially when (if) they pass so should be one of your questions. What will premium go up to?

Hi,
Feel free to give us a try if you like. We have a number of schemes for young drivers.
If you wanted to PM me your contact details I'd be happy to arrange for one of my quotes team to give you a call back.
