Most people start researching insurance providers and getting quotes well before booking their test, as it can help you decide which first car is affordable and means you'll have one less job to do before you can get behind the wheel after passing your test.

The whole point of insurance is that it’s to cover you for whatever life throws at you – and unless you can see into the future, you don’t know what that might be. 

Insurance works in a very straightforward way; the company underwriting the policy will work out the likelihood of the policyholder making a claim, and charge accordingly.

To stay on the right side of the law, you need third-party insurance at the very least – but if your car is worth more than £2000 you really ought to go for comprehensive cover. This sometimes costs little more than the lower level of cover, but gives you far greater protection. However, if you’re on a tight budget, you may have little choice as to how you insure your car…

Something that frequently seems unfair is a £2000 premium on a £500 car; an issue that many young drivers have to contend with. The thing is, the value of the car being insured is immaterial; with third party insurance only, it won’t even be covered.

But what happens if the driver of that car smashes into a Bentley, causing serious damage to the car and its occupants? A couple of heavy personal injury claims won’t be cheap; if you were given £2000 on the basis that you might have to fork out a couple of million pounds because of somebody’s carelessness, would you take the risk?
