Young Driver Insurance (car written off)
I would really appreciate any advice regarding my son’s insurance issue. He’s a young driver and was insured on his own car in April last year, unfortunately he’s had to make two claims both of which were not his fault the first being a car malfunction and the second was an attempted car jacking (this resulted in the incident being reported the police and the car was subsequently written off).
He is now trying to find a new car and the insurance quotes he is receiving make the eyes water, his previous premium was £1.2k whereas now he is being quoted £5.7k which is simply unaffordable.
Could anyone suggest a way around this as he is keen to own his own car and keep driving. We were thinking of insuring myself or my wife as main driver with our son as a named driver, however he will not accumulate his no claims insurance. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.
