Pay as you go Insurance ?

 

How would that work ?

 

Even if that was an option i could see it being just as excessive if not more

it wouldnt   and i agree  that  men shud b charged  more insurance than us females     and i think people with   4 wheel drives   shud   be charged alot of money and small er  cars  shouldnt never mind a bout age  as wel i tink the   bigger the  car the more money they shud pay   and all youngsters   shud be mayed   pay before they  get behind the wheel  a  price of a thousand  pound    thats before they even  begin to drive  dad or mums car

WOMEN are officially worse drivers than men, figures yesterday revealed.   A Driving Standards Agency study into reasons given by examiners for failing learners showed women clocked up 857,000 major errors last year. Men made 646,000.

The findings also showed women are most likely to fail for bungled reverse parking, steering mistakes and botched gear changes. But the findings confirmed men are boy racers.

They often fail for going too fast, ignoring lights or missing signs.

The most common reason for failing an L-test for both sexes was not spotting a hazard at a road junction. It topped the list, followed by failing to check mirrors.

Women need praise from men to help them become better drivers, experts said last night.

Psychologist Dr Zachary Estes said: “Our research suggests that by making a woman feel better about herself she’ll become better at spatial tasks such as parking the car or reading a map.”

Recent research into 19,000 drivers showed that women were up to a fifth safer than men once they passed their tests

 

 

We will say no more  ;P

Most major providers already offer it.

 

Telematics insurance policies offer a personalised price for car insurance based on when and how YOU drive instead of paying for insurance based on the average driver. These policies are also known as black box or smart box insurance. If you’re willing to prove that you’re a safe driver you could pay less for your cover with a telematics car insurance policy.

 

If you drive long distances all the time, then it doesn't really work, unless you are a young driver.

The cost of running a car is absolutely obscene, and primarily the reason I don't, and never would in this country.

In this Country the Price has gone way over the top. Running a car now is hitting family's with cars. The prices of things should go down but instead they continue to go higher and will go higher again and again. Other Country's running a car is seriously Cheap though.

I dont get why they dont do what they do in the states.. They insure the car not the driver. Which then might drop the insurance down for most people. But then again the states is always cheaper to do things than over here.

If you got a Job or Changed your Job,  Then that can make a difference.

Car Insurance is more expencive for the Unemployed or Office Workers.
