Do a comparison check on the internet as there are quite a few websites that are doing it.

Why do you need to look around if you can afford a new type s aged 18? Surely you can afford the insurance too?

Try tesco value insurance, if you're just after a cheep quote then up the excess to the full 125 at the end.

It was on the BBC lunchtime news again on Friday.
Young drivers using Parents, as main drivers.
They are REALLY clamping down and turning down claims.
They are driving without Insurance says the "Old Bill".

ouch! I'm glad i'm 38 now.

My tip would be to get your Mum or Dad on an insurance that gets named drivers their no claims bonuses, (you paying towards it obviously ), then when you are older get your own insurance.

I've just tried Gocompare, moneysupermaket and Tescocompare.

The first two came up with 176.15 for me in Millie, (via Liverpool Victoria, which shows a Civic on its TV add!) and Tescocompare came up with 197.76.

Shop around.

It's your money they're after!

I am amazed that at 19 with a max of two years experience, no no claims that you can get a quote that cheap.

I'm 20 (with 2 years NCB) on a 2.2 SE and mine's a bit over 800, bearing im mind that insurance group wise its the same as a type S.

Be careful as they may not pay out in the event of a claim

22 1 yr no claim 2 yr experience

Norwich Union Direct - 860

I couldn't get anyone cheaper than Tesco on my first yr with on 05 Fiesta (1.4 2,500)

I don't think you will find better, I couldn't.

Also try having your mum/dad on your quote (mum prob best) (2nd infrequent driver), if they have a good record (no crashes/ points) it might make your quote ALOT cheaper!!

got my dad on mine and even though he has 3 points it took 200 off the orininal quote!! yes it was 1,050 before!! (this yrs ins btw)

Elephant or Admiral have generally worked out cheapest for me, although I didn't bother with a car at uni, so I avoided insurance between 19 and 23, which helped a bit on the cost (despite not having driven in the intervening years!).
