Go to a smaller engine than 1.4, go for a maximum of 1.2.Make the car between 5 and 10 years old.Select a higher excess if you can - remember this is the amount you pay before the insurer pays if you have a claim that is your fault so in the event of that be sure you can afford it.Do not scrimp on everything. DO select to have legal cover.If you want breakdown cover then have it with the insurance - not as good as AA and RAC usually but cheaper and better than none.If you think you can manage do not select to get a free coutesy car if yours is involved in a claim.You have not submitted sufficient info for anyone to get a quote (job, postcode, and much more needed)Social Domestic and Pleasure does include travel to work but only to one single place of employment in any one day.You have to get the quotes yourself and most websites will not require you to give a reg but you will be asked for car details.?1500 is not going to be possible if you live in a high car crime area but going for a smaller engined, not sporty not too new and not too old car will help


I would advise you to take a look at this website, which gives you a list of cars, depending on which insurance group you choose. The lower the number, the lower your insurance will be.…Here's a couple of things you can also do that should help to lower your premium.1. With their permission of course, add your parents as named drivers to the policy (as long as they are also drivers).2. If you have the funds, pay your insurance annually. Many insurers will slap on tons of interest for the privilege of you being able to pay monthly.I definitely think you can achieve ?1500, but only with a low insurance group car, and if you pay your policy annually. Take me for example. This year I will be twenty, with three years no claims, and will be able to insure a brand new 2.4 litre Volvo, (which costs ?29000) fully comp, on my own insurance, with my parents as named drivers, for only ?1500. But, even without my parents, I would only pay ?2000. You just have to be smart about what car you get when you first start out, so you can get the cheapest possible insurance for your situation and age.Source(s):Driver.


I presume you are in the UK.Don't take lessons/test in auto, the cars cost more to run and if you later want manual transmission, you will have to take further lessons and test. Stick with a Ford or Vauxhall, parts both new and used are far cheaper and easier to source. Try websites like 'money supermarket' & 'confused .com' to get quotes. Good luck.

Pay cash for the car, get liability insurance ONLY.


It won't go down as much as you think when you turn 25 - you have not built up any no claims bonus.Second point - don't bother with automatic - if you ever change your mind you will need to resit the test again - learn in a manual car.SDP = Social, Domestic & Pleasure - not all policies cover travel to work in them - you need to make sure that it covers you for Social, Domestic, Pleasure and commute to and from a place of work.Don't even bother trying to get insurance until you have passed your test - you will be hit with high premiums.Even when you pass your test - DON'T spend a lot of money on your first car - spend as little as possible on a car that you do not really care about - then, when you get the odd dent or scrape on it, which most people do - you won't care and you won't want to claim on your policy.Best tips I can give and another one for info - go onto and do the search on there.FINALLY - DO NOT be tempted by some answers on here to get your mum or dad to insure the car with you as a named driver - it doesn't work that way - if the insurer has any suspicion that you are driving it more than your mum or dad - you will invalidate the insurance - they have got wise to this and so have the policeanswer assuming UK resident


Insurance cost depends on a LOT of factors, it depends on where you live, how much coverage you are going to want, who else is in the household, and the credit score of the ownerWhy not ring that phone number you saw on that billboard or on the telly??
