Insuring young drivers with performance, high insurance group cars
For many young drivers, the desire to own, drive and insure a high performance car, usually one that falls in a high insurance group, is irresistible. This 'need for speed' however, comes at a price and with a severe limitation on the number of insurance companies willing to insure young people with high performance, high insurance group cars.
"The idea of young people like me driving round in a small car was really boring - I'd always wanted to own a car that had a bit more performance and I am willing to pay the increased insurance premiums so that I can drive the car I'd always wanted"
The traditional advice given to young drivers when it comes to buying a car is to go for the lowest insurance group they can find, so as to keep their insurance premiums to a minimum. For many, however, the attraction of driving a higher insurance group, high performance car such as a 'hot hatch' makes paying the increased premiums worthwhile.
A higher insurance group car is not necessarily the preserve of high performance or sports vehicles - often cars are placed in higher insurance groups owing to the type of vehicle, their value or because insurance companies know that they are expensive to repair following a claim. For these and other reasons, young drivers with high performance, high insurance group cars may find the insurance quotes available from QuoteRack's specialist insurance brokers to be as irresistible as their cars...

"I have a Golf GTi and for an 18 year old, it is very expensive to insure - but I look after the car, I've paid a lot for it so I wanted to make sure it was properly insured"
"Even cars rated higher than insurance group 12 can be off-limits to many young drivers - but shopping around for insurance quotes meant that I am now able to drive a higher performance car"
