    Sincere congratulations , but I know from experience that this is the time parents start worrying about their youngsters going out on their own - for a while anyway .

    Well done that girl.

    Now you have a whole new set of problems... car and insurance. Good luck with both, especially the ins.

    Looked at the various options of car and insurance.

    By middle of next week, she 'might' have a new Fiat 500 to enjoy.

    Weirdly, the insurance on an 8yo Ford Fiesta is the same as a brand new Fiat 500 .....

    They're more worried about a car load of exuberant teenagers meeting a lamp post at speed than the difference in cost between an old and new car - the latter probably has better crash protection.

    Congrats to your daughter. I passed first time, and then had two crashes in one day!

    I wouldn't shackle my daughter to a black box.

    Added to the multicar policy and pick it up tomorrow night.
