  • Youthful drivers seen as high insurance risk

    Inexperienced drivers tend to pay substantially more for their car insurance than more experienced motorists because, statistically, they are more likely to have accidents and incur higher claims costs. Radical measures have been suggested to restrict how, when and what such groups can drive
    Scott Kelly, car insurance expert
  • What makes a good first car?

    The rule with buying a first car is to spend as much as you can afford, bearing in mind the huge cost of insurance and fuel. A decent first car can be had for less than £1,000, but - to secure a blend of safety and reliability - between £2,000 and £3,000 might be better
    Stuart Milne, used car editor at Auto Trader
  • What are the most popular first cars?

    The Ford Fiesta, Vauxhall Corsa, Renault Clio, Peugeot 206, Toyota Yaris and Volkswagen Polo are consistently popular thanks to their image. The large numbers in which they sold when new means there’s a massive choice that helps to keep it a buyer's market
    Stuart Milne, used car editor at Auto Trader
  • Youthful drivers warned about drink driving

    It is worrying that younger drivers continue to drink and drive and we will be redoubling our efforts to address this unacceptable behaviour... the figures clearly demonstrate that if you drink and drive you are significantly more likely to be involved in a collision and lose your licence

Motorists aged 17-24 face some of the highest car premiums around because they're statistically the most likely to make a claim, they're inexperienced, and they have a bad reputation with insurers.

The Association of British Insurers (ABI) found that male drivers under the age of 21 are 10 times more likely to have an accident than male drivers aged 35 years or over.

Young women drivers are statistically safer than young males and could traditionally expect lower premiums than young men, but a European Court of Justice ruling has made it illegal to use gender as a factor in determining insurance prices.

Did you know...?

  • Advanced driving courses have many advantages - but it's possible that you won't recover your outlay on the course in insurance savings
  • Finding a car in an appropriately low insurance group could be key to keeping your premium affordable

Given these factors, it's more important than ever to shop around for the best deal.

Telematics is another possible solution for inexperienced drivers seeking affordable insurance, and in our quotes process you'll have the option of comparing telematics quotes against standard quotes.

All insurers treat risk differently and prices for new motorists can vary by hundreds, even thousands, of pounds, so let us help you find the right deal.
