i'm 22 and cos i've always been a second driver i had no no-claims bonuses and people were offering me rediculous things like 1500 f/c..... but i could only drive it once a month and had to get a tracker fitted (my postcode did me no favours) so i shopped about and got it on classic insurance. well'a cheap.
you'll be able to get it better than that though, try a few online quotes. i'd say around 1k probably?

Try and get some classic insurance quotes with limited mileage. Will you be using the car everyday or at weekends/summer use??

Will you be using another car as well?? All these sorts of things affect insurance quotes unfortunately as well as your age which as 22 with no no claims will go against you so expect to pay a lot.  :cry:
