As motorists in the UK, and especially as a young driver, the cost of our insurance can be affected in a large way by our choice of vehicle. While new drivers who have just passed their tests may have big ideas about their first car, many of the more desirable rides will be priced out of their budgets. As with all insurance, the insurers try to establish the risk level of a claim being made. Factors which increase the likelihood of a claim will most likely increase the cost of the monthly premium/cost to you. Being a driver of a fast, powerful car, or a car with a high repair cost, makes you more likely to cause an expensive collision.

This effect is even higher with young drivers who haven't had the time to build up a no claims discount. The result? Considering your car insurance group before buying your car is a very wise move. Cars in lower insurance groups will, everything else being equal, tend to cost less to insure. NEW: Check out our blog!
