Classic car insurance for young drivers

Hi
First time poster on this forum!

I am a new driver and as all new drivers do, I'm finding insurance an insane problem! the only way I can see of getting insurance for a resonable price is on my mums car (Skoda Fabia V reg) as the third driver. I could probably just about stretch to that, but being on my mums car isn't ideal as she takes it to work every day and it's not exactly the essence of cool!

Anyway, recently I found that classic car insurance is far cheaper than normal car insurance if you do it on limited milage, which would be fine for me cause I wouldn't be driving that far that often. Does anyone know if classic car insurers would insure me (newly passed my test 18 years old)

I really fancy a classic car and I'd be much more willing to fork out for a car than fork out for insurance on my parents car!

Gavin

highly doubt it, but it depends on the company
i think it takes an age of 25 an up, worth a check though

Because insuring a car is completely different in the UK and US, and most of this forums members are in the US, that would be a hard question to answer. Wouldn't it be logical to simply ring up an insurer and ask? If you don't have a company in mind I'll be happy to provide a couple of UK classic car insurers names for you.

A week down the road and not even a simple thank you. You're viewing the forum as I type this so please, no excuses. I thought people in the UK were raised with manners.

Manners? you bloody wat, your avin a laugh mate lol..I could respond to this thread but all I was going to say has already been said, although, for a young driver, driving a classic aint exactly cool either Gavin and Skoda's aint that bad anymore, I'd get your name on the Skoda's insurance for now at least!

Thanking someone for an answer or continuing in dialog is not a "bump."

It's just proper manners. And we love manners around here!
