    SORN Insurance 12th Jun 17 at 9:51 AM
    Hello All,


    I was wondering whether anyone knew of a good insurer for SORN vehicles?


    I am buying a new car but won't be driving it until I pass my test, what is my best option to make sure it is covered against theft or fire etc?


    Thanks.

    It will, I presume, be kept off the road on private land?

    Why not just buy it when you're going to start using it?

    Unless you're planning on learning using it, with full insurance, or it's too good a deal to pass up (like a family member giving you it for under trade value), then it's probably a much wiser plan to just buy a car after you pass - that way you're not paying insurance for it and having it sit unused depreciating indefinitely.

    I can't understand why you would buy a new car before passing your test.

    I would suggest you pay a deposit and ask dealer to keep it for you until you have passed.
