UK statistics show that young drivers are three times more likely to be involved in road accidents than older drivers. This is mainly due to their lack of experience and they are considered to be in the “high risk” bracket. Car insurance for young drivers is likely to be a little more expensive due to this. It is important to compare different companies in order to find the best insurance quote.
Young drivers in the UK should consider foremost the type of car insurance they want to search for. For example, Third Party is cheaper, and protects you from accidents which involve your car and any other third party involved. However, it does not protect you from theft or damage. Only with fully comp can a young driver be protected from these as well as build up a no claims discount/bonus which allows a young driver to save on car insurance for each year they do not claim.
