Most likely getting some extra lessons with their dad. I cannot see a new driver getting insured unless they want to pay £10k + a year.
I had an ST, pretty powerful car. Way too much for a kid, saying that i have seen kids no older than 18 driving AMG merc's which is a far more
powerful car. I saw an Audi Q8 with "L" plates a few weeks ago, huge car...here in England it is anyway lol.
My first car was an Escort 1.3
I believe their should be a scale for experience, ie, you cant pass your test and jump straight into a BMW M3 or something. The first 3 years you
should be limited to driving a car with no more than 100BHP, after that you do 3 years upto 250BHP, after 7 years you should have learned enough to
Ive been driving 18 years and im still tested on a daily basis by idiot drivers. Some of these kids are mental, ive cringed as they have over taken me
on country roads, they think because they are in a nice car, a head on at 150mph wont kill them....60mph victim, 90mph idiot overtaking.
I know kids arent the only nutters on the road, but where i am they make up the majority, closely followed by crazy old drivers who think doing 20mph
on a country road with blind bends is wise. I dont mean a little lane, i mean a normal width road thats more bendy than most and runs between fields
with low visibility. I have to risk my life to attempt to save it in those situations, id rather use my judgement and experience to overtake rather
than getting rear ended by a van doing 70mph, or a bike doing 100mph+.
The joys of motoring, plus its getting really expensive now.
