Car insurance for 17-year-olds
The experts say it’s easiest to learn to drive when you’re young, and 17-year-olds do have the highest pass rate to prove it.
Black box liberates learners and young drivers
So you’ve turned 17 and the key to the driving world door is now in your hands. But where to start? Buying your first car insurance policy can be expensive, which is a bit of a downer when you're excited to get on the road and enjoy your freedom.
At ingenie we’re all about rewarding good drivers, whether you’re still learning or just recently passed. You can make driving more affordable with black box insurance, which lets you pay for your cover based on how you drive. ingenie looks at your speed, acceleration, braking and cornering and uses the data to work out your discounts - up to a 21% saving over the year.
How you can cut costs for your first year on the road
Choose a car based on insurance
Picking the right car can make a huge difference on your insurance premiums. There’s nothing worse than travelling miles to see a potential new car and falling in love, before you’ve even looked at how much it’s going to cost you to insure it.
It's always best to run a few quotes through before you buy. You don’t even need to know the car registration number to get an insurance quote, just enter as many details as you can at ingenie.com to get an idea of what you could be paying.
Think about cars in low insurance groups too, as they're not only cheaper to insure - they’re also likely to have low vehicle tax and could even be exempt.
Think about black box insurance
No matter what stage of driving you're at, learning never stops - even after you've got your full licence, and so we'll send you feedback on your driving to help you keep up the good work you’ve done with your instructor.
With black box insurance, we can treat you as an individual based on how you actually drive. You’ll get a competitive price upfront and have the chance to earn up to 21% off over the year for your good driving.
Unlike other insurers we give you the chance to earn your discounts 3 times a year, so you have more control of what you're paying throughout the year.
