  1. I used to use ADAC but stopped some 2+ years ago as it was increasingly less hassle-free. Lots of reports of renewal difficulties and renewal refusals. Back in the day this was the way to get Euro cover with repatriation all included for next to no cost. It used to be about £80 per year. Obviously lots of Let Mans and Ring goes cottoned onto the idea and suddenly they didn't fancy the business any more.

    Late MOT

    I had this too. I got Dean at Eporsch to reply by email to me that MOT was booked in via them.
  3. It's showing £100 cash back for Aviva if you buy through Quidco by close of play Wednesday.
  4. Buy Aviva through Quidco. I did that for the Fiesta and got £50 cash back.
  5. Out of pure laziness I have renewed this albeit I paid the renewal 2 days late. The PCGB renewal isn't actually due till end of this month so wonderful whether I can get away with not renewing that ... ?
  6. Locktons wrote me a letter detailing my no claims.
  7. At renewal the Locktons premium looks increasingly uncompetitive. First off is the £30 renewal fee, then there is the premium increase itself (mine is about £20), then there is the £60 PCGB renewal fee. So you're at circa £100 more than the previous year which is circa 35% more than prior year.
  8. £30 just to renew seems a bit of a con. It's 10% of the premium in my case. When you renew your other insurances whether with same or different insurer you don't pay a renewal fee do you? I haven't in the past. When you take out a new Lockton policy there is no renewal or admin fee to pay.
  9. Anyone else get hit with a £30 admin renewal charge when renewing your Locktons PCGB insurance policy?
  10. Indeed, the front 2 on the Fiesta are already well kerbed!
  11. No black box involved. This policy when I renewed it a month ago with a provisional named driver was about 200 cheaper than it was with Diamond. So now with a new full licence holder its another saving. She hates the Boxster, too hard a ride, too low and too difficult to get in and out of. She hasn't even tried driving it yet. The heavier clutch and steering won't go down well. When I had the old moped she tried that on the second day and dropped it so don't think driving the Boxster any time soon is going to happen
  12. It seems to be happy days indeed test passed 2 days ago, policy updated and no additional premium. Policy was new just over a month ago. It's only a 2016 Fiesta and the premium is circa 370. I had to call again to double check they didn't make a mistake. I still can't quite believe it!
  13. I'm surprised too. I rang my insurer and advised that the names driver is now a full licence holder having passed the test yesterday. I reconfirmed all the details and the call handler noted all the details and said its all done is there anything else I can help you with! There was zero discussion about the premium which of course I do t mind. I've done everything I need to in terms of notification.
  14. Older person in 30s going from car provisional to car full licence. Test passed yesterday.
  15. I was always under the impression that once you go from a provisional licence to a full licence that the insurance cost goes up as then you are a new driver but now entirely at your own devices. I've just called my insurer to make such a change with my wallet in hand and nothing was mentioned about any additional premium. Is that normal?
