      Only for under 20s and new drivers. In the uk we tend to drive 100 miles an hour less then a day from passing the test so we crash and insurers get pissed

    Old video but stumbled across it. I recently got my first car at 21, got a 20 reg clio mkV. Originally quoted 1.3k for 6k miles and I'm currently paying 1.7k for 20k miles... With a black box. Lesson learned, don't get insurance within the week you need it.

    I had to get my 18 yr old nephew a car on a budget. In the end we settled on a 10 yr old Fiesta for £1700 and the insurance was £1300 for SE London. While doing this and messing about on comparetheweasel (not their real name) it became clear that if you get insurance for the day you buy the car it goes up by hundreds. Same day insurance worked out at £2000. We got the policy to run just 3 days later and bought off-the-shelf daily insurance for £89! Also always add a low risk driver to the policy to bring down the premium, even if theyre never going to drive it.

    insurance pricing in the uk is insane, my first car was a 1970 c20 Silverado with a supercharged 454, 5 speed that I built in high school and was driving at 16. I only paid $1k USD a year but back then I was driving a dump truck for work and did own about 9 vehicles at once from Silverado's to broncos and jeeps. insurance wasn't ever a bad cost.... gas was though was spending nearly $500 a week in fuel......
