Next year one of my kids will be old enough to start driving - so Iíve been giving some thought to what vehicle would make sense.

In the back of my mind an obvious solution to the Ēcheap to buy, cheap to insure - and ItalianĒ calculation was a Fiat Panda. Iíve had one of these before and theyíre a lot of fun to drive, great visibility, etc.

But recently Iíve been wondering if a 145/146 would work... so my question is, have any of you guys tried to add a learner driver to one off these cars under a classic car insurance policy?

(Iím assuming a standard policy would be a non-starter price-wise.)

A friend of mine (who has kids slightly older than mine) told me that insurance for a learner driver is not too bad - it's when they pass their test and can drive unaccompanied that the premiums rocket.

A quick look on comparethemarket confirms this:

For an Alfa 146ti, 3rd party, fire & theft cover:

Me only: £250
Me plus 16 yr old son as an additional driver - provisional licence: £650 (not too bad!)
Me plus 16 yr old son as an additional driver - full licence, passed in the last year: £3000 (yikes!)
