Far too cheap to en­sure

Practical Classics (UK) - - YOUR SHOUT - An­drew Vart, Caer­philly

My son passed his test and loves driv­ing the fam­ily VW Polo. So, we took a deep breath and pre­pared to go through the usual rig­ma­role, but, no-one would touch him as a named driver. If we trans­ferred the car to him and coughed up two grand for a black box, it would be pos­si­ble to give him his own pol­icy, said one bro­ker. Then one spe­cial­ist said: ‘Yes, we do named driv­ers un­der age 25.’ But there was a prob­lem, ‘Your car isn’t worth enough for us to in­sure’. No, re­ally, he meant it! Now my son can’t drive the car he loves… it’s too cheap. Mad­ness.
