Hi, my daughter has recently become a full time carer for her mum who has been medically retired due to extreme physical ill health. We have saved to get her a driving lessons but now find that the insurance of over £1500 quoted to get cover is something we cannot afford on our low incomes. Can anyone suggest how we can raise these funds..

If the DM is officially registered disabled then carer's or attendance allowances could potentially be available.

insurance for teenagers is very pricey, they have a 1 in 4 chance of a murderous crash. Boys are much worse than girls but the stupid EU 'gender equality' nonsense has put paid to that.

contact a broker to see if you can do better. Also put someone with a good driving record on the insurance as a named driver (This is ok, it is putting your daughter as a named driver that is fraud) and consider a black box for the car.
