[Moved:Classic Cars] Another classic car insurance question

    Being an 18 year old and trying to get around this no under 25s rule to get insurance for a classic car is tough, but is getting classic insurance a necessity or can i just get "normal" insurance on my near 40 year old car? of course at a much higher price, the price of the insurance not being the problem, only the getting it! Also does anybody know the conditions for insuring a classic car under fleet insurance? a friend of mine got around the under no 25s rule with fleet insurance, of course with another 3 cars in the drive and a decent company to his dads name..

    Hi takeyotime

    And welcome to boards :)

    Your question has been asked and answered many times here in the classic cars forum. Do a search and read the charter for some tips and hints.

    The short and maybe unhelpful answer is that you probably don't have much of a chance to insure your car as a classic car.

    Welcome to boards.A lot of people insure a classic as their full-time car. Your biggest problem (apart from price) is that many companies wont insure cars over a certain age.You can forget about Quinn-direct for starters as they wont insure anything over 20 years old, not even temporarily.As well as ringing around the insurance companies try calling a few brokers as well, they might have more info and these days would probably be delighted to hear the phone ringing.....
