Sweet Baby Cheesus.......
how much it costs to insure a tiny little car for a 21yr old?????
It's extortion by any other name.

It's not what they might do to their little car, it's what they might do to other people's that causes the high premiums!

Oh dear, it must have got worse since I was in this place. Have the insurance companies done as they were told by the EU, and equalised the premiums between lads and girls? My two girls got there before this so were quite reasonably charged. Girls were seen as much lower risk. On the plus side, the no claims bonus soon builds up.

Oh don't tell me, we have years yet to go! But maybe its slightly less than for a 15 year old learner boy - we'll find out next year (and I'm sure we'll have to forego a vacation to pay for it)

If you put her on to your policy, it will work out cheaper but you may lose your no claims if she has a mishap. As soon as mine was 25, I said to him 'you're on your own kid, insure it yourself or go without!'....hard but necessary in my case. Good Luck.

You should try getting quotes for a 17 year old...then you'd feel you're getting a bargain!

Tell me all about it! The daughter has just passed her test at the grand old age of 17 some are now coughing up for 4 drivers in the house :-(

NB...been there done that got the t etc.,...at least this time around she is going to chip in with some of her own money.
CQ....I know........when you look up and down the road and we all seem to have at least 3 or 4 cars on the drive it does make you wonder if we shouldn't all start walking a bit more!
