Published

With driving lessons back in full swing and the backlog for practical driving tests starting to decrease, more young drivers could be close to getting their full driving licence.

New research by car insurance company Admiral shows the top 10 cheapest cars for 17 year-old’s to insure.

Clare Egan, Head of Motor Product at Admiral, said: “For many 17-year-olds it can be expensive to get on the road, with several costs to consider. As well as paying out for a car, new drivers also have to think about the price of fuel, car insurance, vehicle tax and servicing – so it all adds up.

“Young drivers tend to pay more for their insurance because unfortunately they’re statistically a higher risk. They’re more likely to have an accident than older drivers and the accidents they have are more expensive.

“Car insurance for young drivers doesn’t come cheap but shopping around can help them find the best deal. The cost of car insurance is based on a number of things including the value of the vehicle itself and its group rating. The lower the group rating, the cheaper insurance will usually be.

“Having a telematics or black box policy could also be an option for getting cheaper car insurance. With black box insurance, drivers are monitored for how well they drive and safer drivers are rewarded with lower premiums. As most black box insurance providers offer free theft tracking, including Admiral, they can also double up as an added security measure too.

“Young drivers who don’t want to commit to a full telematics policy can also benefit from app-based telematics. Many insurers, including Admiral offer an app that can be downloaded and monitors how you drive and potentially offer discounts. Admiral App users have the option of allowing it to collect data on their journeys and if they drive well, they can get a discount at renewal. It also offers emergency assistance if they have an accident and they can manage their policy online.
