Young motorists are purchasing powerful motor vehicles says AA

It has been revealed by the AA that young drivers are buying more powerful motor vehicles that are more expensive to buy and insure.

The AA has found that many young drivers are buying cars that are too powerful for a recently qualified driver to drive on the road. This is a big risk factor for many insurance companies as they see more young drivers are more likely to have an accident, thus having to pay a higher car insurance rate.

Young drivers need to build up their no-claim bonus and conviction free driving status as quick as possible, and then over the years they should see their insurance premiums fall in price.
