    Congratulations! All the best drivers, pass on their second attempt

    I hope the insurance isn't too painful for the new motor

    Yeah always check the insurance group before buying a car the lower the number the better. When I purchased my first car it was a Renault Clio 1.2 Campus (Insurance Group 1) and it was £2400 per year and even more if I was to pay monthly. Women used to get half the insurance premiums but now the insurance on my girlfriend 1.2 Corsa is around the £2000 mark.
    It doesn't normally matter that much on age either, an old boss of mine who is 29 has just passed and bought himself a 1.6 Astra, the insurance on that is £3800 per year!
    It does get better though I'm on my third year driving and my insurance for a 1.8 Honda Civic Type S is £460 Fully comp it's the first year that's the hardest my girlfriend has so far spent around £6000 on her driving for the first year so you better get your moneys up But enjoy and don't hit anything!

    Possibly also the make / model of the car , maybe they dont see that as a boy racer type of car where it can be modified into a sports type car and go a lot faster etc etc

    Just guessing here - so could be wrong - other factors are generally type of job, marital status and a long list of other things

    Wow would you mind sending a link to the same website you got that off? 6,000 miles is low though (for me) so maybe that's it I easily do 20,000 a year and my girlfriend does more

    I think his age has a lot to do with the price.
