I'm a new driver.
I was shocked to get numerous qoutes from various insurance companies of nearly £4000. For a 1.2 clio. Twice the value of the car.
I believe this is extremley unfair on those drivers who are extremly sensible, like me…
I mean, how many 17 or 18 year olds have 4k lying around, and a car. Let alone the cost of petrol with all this tax on it.
I call the government to step in and sort this mess out, either with policies to proove that younger drviers can be sensible, or measures to make sure that 4K is really needed for a small car.
such measures could be a deposit based system, if you crash, you loose your deposit. Simple. I don't buy cinema tickets and rent a dvd instead that evening?
Why is this idea important?
How many 17 or 18 year olds have 4k lying around, and a car. Let alone the cost of petrol with all this tax on it.
either a motoring scheme for young drivers to use cars, or a means of selecting safer drivers, or deposit based insurance policies.
It's time for the goverment to step in, do it for me Nick? 😉
