Hello all,

Im looking at getting my first skyline.... But i wanna get an GTR version.. Hopefully a 33, But enough of that, Insurance is why im here..

I need your views on whats my chances of getting insured..

Plan A:
Im 22 years old got 5 years NCB and will have another car on fully comp insurance.. It will be in a safe garage at night and only do around 1000 miles a year..

Or my other idea is to do the following.

Plan B:
Get it under my dads name.... Age: 44 NCB: 6 kept in garage aswell.. An then be a named driver under it...


I would rather get it under my name but if i dont stand a chance in getting one then i would rather get in his name than not have one at all.....

I did get 1 price for myself from Elephant and that was £2800... Should i just give up and keep dreaming of my skyline or is there a chance i can get a decent price under £1500

Thanks in advance

Well, £2,800 isn't a bad place to start. That's a better price than I was quoted (when I could get a quote at all) on a 1994 GTS25t. If you go for a GTR V-Spec, because it's not an import, many more insurance compaines will quote you a price. Then you can play them off against each other. Have you seen the discount deal we have with A-plan?

Obviously your age will play against you, but having 5 years NCB should certainly help. I looked at having the car in my Dad's name to keep insurance costs down but for the extra money I paid for the first year to have it solely in my name it was well worth it because when I came to renew, most insurers accepted the fact that I now had experience of driving the car without incident.

Good luck :)

I did see that discount for A-Plan.. I think ill give them a bell tomorrow and see what they can come up with.

I all so see your point about getting it in your own name, But at the end of the day if i was to get fully comp on my Dads' Ford KA it would cost me £1500 believe it or not... Even thou i am fully comp on a Custom built Ford Escort Gti for £500... Dont like insurance it dont make sence,

But aslong as i can get something ill be happy and wont mind paying for it, I just want one!!! pmsl

Next it be time to find a Car :)

Just to add some more this message... I just got 2 prices under my dads name with me as a Driver and for a GTR V-Spec...

£4100 & £4500

SO there no better :(

Try insuring the car in your name but add your dad on as a named driver, this reduced the cost on my insurance and worked wonders with my brother in law when he put my wife on his insurance. :bigthumb:

This is (IMHO) not true (only the few UK cars are not imports, not all V-Specs). :D

Anyway, if you contact A Plan etc. they will want to know what experience you have driving 'powerful' cars, so if you've had/driven decent motors in the past it will help you.

You don't build up NCB with TPF&T insurance though, do you?
I got my 1yrs no claim for being third party only. The other year of driving one as a named driver so didnt get any for that.

I am 20 having been driving 2 1/2 years and 1 years no claims and i am insured for £1850 with Adrian Flux on a R33 GTST.

Try A-Plan or Adrian Flux i think A-Plan will be cheaper for you though as they insure drivers 22+ from what they told me.
