So, we bought a new car because Chippy needs to be able to drive. No problems there, came out with a great deal on an automatic and we love it. The driving lessons have had to go on hold until after Xmas as cash is tight, again no problems there. So I figured I’d get the insurance to allow her as a named driver and as she has been driving for 7 years on a full US licence didn’t think it would be a problem – even as just a provisional driver. Now it turns out, I have to cancel my existing policy, take out a new one, get effed in the ay and smile while they take away lots of cash – over double my last policy. Bloody insurance companies, bunch of …well, I’d like to say something abusive so let’s settle on cunning stunts….And it turns out that I lost my ability to drive other cars 3rd party. Now, before you say it, I *could* call other insurance companies and dive into phone musaq hell, but I only had a window of 1 hour to do it and it really needs a full day of graft to do it. Rest assured, that day will arrive before the next policy is up….
