    Would appreciate some advice.

    I am about to lend my nephew some money for a car.
    He can't get a bank loan as he's only been in his job 2 weeks and they have said 3 months. He goes to work at about 5:30 in the morning so public transport is useless.

    Anyway I would prefer to keep ownership of the car. More to send him a psychological message than anything else.

    Will this cause problems when he comes to insure as he will definitely be the main (only) driver?

    I have a feeling it will be a problem.
    Are there any ways round it, or will the car simply have to go into his name?
