£33,000 to insure a Vauxhall Corsa

Sam Burnett

17-year-olds expect to pay a lot of money for their car insurance, but Jake Redshaw of Salford was a little taken aback when a comparison website returned with a quote for almost £33,000 from the AA.

That turned out to be an error, but even so, the newly-qualified driver says that he's going to have to wait a little while before he can afford to insure his five-year-old Vauxhall Corsa - the cheapest quote he found was £5,700.
