It's ridiculous, all my friends in America, their kids have been driving since they were 15 and premiums not nearly as bad, blooming country! Rant over
Here, Here! I passed my test 3 years ago this October and have only been able to actually drive a handful of times because of the cost of insurance!

When my parents go away on holiday and I NEED the car, they will insure me temporarily on it so that I can get around... a week costs circa £60! I haven't had a quote less than £2,500 for a year and that is after passing my test three years ago, so that has gone down from what it was originally, too.
