I have a full bike licence which includes cat B1 (trikes,small cars etc). I am now doing my driving test to get full car (cat .
Now I've had my full licence for 20years, to get a full car licence counts as upgrading my licence, so I don't need to do the theory test, just practical. The worry I have is will a car insurer take into account 20years of experience or will they just class me as a new driver?
The quotes I've got are either £500 (for a Ford Focus/Peugeot 206/Corsa) if my 20 years count or...£1500 if I'm classed as a new driver!!Which is more than the car would cost to buy.
Does anyone have any experience of this, if so I'd be grateful for any advice.
