    Blimey surely that's a month? Mines 800 a year for a crappy combo (30 years old low risk area 3 points)

    I thought that was £87 per year to start off with, I was thinking "how cheap do you want it, if it gets cheaper they'll be paying you!"
    I have never failed, just found ways that won't work!

    254 a year for an 08 plate caddy maxi. Benefits of being old I suppose. This on borders of Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire. Would be even cheaper if we were in Ipswich.

    I renewed mine this week. £1000. for an 08 plate renault traffic. Last year i paid £1700 for the year. Thats what you get for being 22 i guess. You gotta laugh if not you might cry.

    yeah im pleased it is quite a drop in price this year than the previous. with all the costs of van, tools, gs reg, insurances, training fees, advertising, feels like we should be charging £200 per ball valve just to recoup lol.

    Don't worry. The new "equality" rules might make it cheaper in 2013 for you lads.

    Insurance is a nightmare, with 6 years no claims at 24 years of age the cheapest i can get on a berlingo worth £500 is £650! it's like buying the van again!
