Should Young Drivers Pay More for Car Insurance?

Ask a Question

Should young drivers have to pay more for car insurance?

Insurance costs for 17-24 year olds have skyrocketed to £3,000. But is it fair given their higher risk?

I don't think that it is fair for them to be paying £3000 but they should be paying a little more as they are a higher risk. I paid a higher premium when I first passed and it dropped down as I got older. It is the same for every driver but I do think £3000 is excessive.

It doesn’t seem fair but then insurance in general doesn’t seem fair to me. If you drive for 50 years and never claim imagine the money you have spent for basically nothing.

Cheaper if you don't have insurance as the penalty of getting caught isn't as much

Insurance has rocketed for everyone but it’s unjust for those who have just passed their test regardless of age.

It always has been higher and for a young person the insurance is usually more than the cost of their first car. I remember when my son started driving, it nearly emptied his bank account.
