Q: I am very much interested in purchasing a newer model vehicle but I haven’t given much thought about insurance. A lot of persons are advising me that my premium will be very high but this will be my first car and I would very much like to purchase something which suits my taste. Is there a way for me to check the best deals before purchasing car insurance to influence the decision making process?

A: You are on the right track. Some makes and models are much more costly to insure than others as insurance premiums vary widely between different models. While you may have a particular preference in mind go to and look at what the various models and years along with the various coverage will cost you.


Q: Is it ok for me to have a learner driver driving my car – with me in it of course?

Thanking you for a response.

A: You may breach your insurance policy if you allow a ‘Learner’ even with you present to drive your vehicle. We suggest that you read the terms of your policy and if you remain in doubt – call your Broker.
