Wanting a car :(

Ok guys so i passed my test over a month ago now and i REALLY want my own car which i think is gonna be... you guessed it a Voxhall corsa. im told these are the most reliable old cars, since its needs to be atleast 10 years old for me to afford it xD

However the next problem to arise with buying a car is the insurance :l finding anything less than like £5000 has been quite a challenge:( However! i have finally manage dto find some affordable insurance!!! but as you might have guessed there is a catch...

The insurance its self can be brought for around £1200 which is consideraby better/ cheaper than anything else i have found, but its one of these where you have to have a little box installed in your car which monitors your driving basically. theyll shove the premium up if you go over an speed limits, take corners too fast or accelerate or brake to hard! which at first thought sounds very shit i know, bt then i decided if it was a choice to either not drive at all! or be abke to drive and follow these rules then im gonna have t stick to these rules :/

Anyone else having similar problems or even possibly  have found a better solution :p ?

  1. Dude! I dunno where you are from but when i went for my drivers learner licence i failed it but paid another 80 dollars and sat it again like 20 minutes later. To get my P plates i just got 6 driving lessons with a government instructor. To get my full licence i was in the another state and they couldnt be bothered with the paperwork so they took my provisional licence and gave a my full one instead. Where are you from anyway?

  4. Are you sure about the car? I mean, depending where you live, a bike can be the better option, cheap, clean, makes you fit and... you can look like Michael Bluth

  7. it doesnt hafta be 1200 car, find one for 500 and just dont plan on driving it far, alot more people would own a car if they werent so god damn expensive to own! buy the car, insure the car, gas, and inspection stickers, look at all those extra expenses just to OWN AND OPERATE

  10. Hmmm I remember watching an episode of top gear where they insured a car for 250 pounds + they didn't have to install a monitoring box or anything.
    That was a year ago though.

  15. I've never even heard of those kinds of cars. I'm not a big fan of the hatch backs. they look like egg cars.
    I helped a friend of mine buy his car on craigslist.
    it was super simple and you didn't have to deal with salesmen and junk.
    just a thought.
