    Car Insurance for new car 8th Jan 18 at 6:17 PM
    My new car comes on Thursday however I'm still yet to sell my existing car.. I would like to use my NCD for the new car but its already being used on the existing car.

    What do people normally do in this situation

    Sell the old car first, trade the old car in as part ex.

    Ask your insurer if they will cover both cars for a week, often your better off selling the old car quickly.

    Costs to insure it may outweigh selling for a lower price right now. Dont forget if the insurance lapses on it you must SORN it which cancels the tax and makes it harder to sell.
    Punctuation, Spelling and Grammar will be used sparingly. Due to rising costs of inflation.

    Due to me being a tight git.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I spoke to Admiral, my current insurance is with Quote me Happy but they don't insure under 18, and they said if i present them the NCD cert within 30 days of starting the insurance that would be OK. Is that right?

    That's usually the case. When I took my insurance out on my new car I was in the same position. I was told that as long as I submit proof of ncb within 30 days, there would be no problems with switching it over.
