Agreed, and add as many family members as you can as named drivers, but only those with clean licenses and many years no accidents etc

Not always cheaper, my sons second year of driving was cheaper without myself and wife on it, strange I know. I think they make it up while they go on lol.

We took the same path with both daughter (who is now 19) and son (17 and learning).

Citroen C1 in their own name. Fully comp insurance in their name with us both as named drivers while learning for approx £750 per year through Direct Line with black box. We came off as named drivers when daughter passed and it didn't make much difference to insurance premium. I think she was just under £700 and he was closer to £800. Now she is £500 odd for insurance.

C1 audio is woeful but it's cheap and easy to upgrade because the cabins are so small.

TBH I would rather wait and put them in a larger, decent car.

Ive seen C1s and Aygo's having accidents at less than 40mph and the whole car crumpling to the point where firefighters need to be called. This was with a Fiesta as well.

Im pretty sure they occupants would have been dead if it was a large SUV or saloon.
