How does that work now that women drivers are not allowed to be classed differently in regards to insurance?

Thats a good point. Ive actually a good mind to sue my insurance company for discriminating against me as a young male driver and charging me more lol

Good question!

Lot of people I work thought the brand would basiclly take a nosedive. But actually it's out performing the other safe risk brand since the gender ruling back in December. As we don't take any risk on from young drivers we don't see a lot of the over £1000 policies coming through. From what I've heard from my previous company the difference for male teens driver has went down in price since last year. If only they would bring in an age ruling as that's the biggest rating factor that I come across now.

thats probably the pub machines there was always a scam with them , normally somebody that writes the software puts a few cheats in the program and leaks it out. we dont do pub machines anymore.
