When I last renewed in May of this year, my wife was still on a provisional licence, and I had three points on mine. Best deal was with Norwich Union Direct, at £828, payable monthly. Since then, my wife has passed her test, and I've picked up three more points.
Although the existing policy runs til next May, I was browsing the net this morning, and just for something to do, I started getting some on-line quotes. This led to a phone call to elephant.com, as a result of which I'm switching insurers on 1 November, saving me over £150. Incidentally, as it is a topical point, I told them about the non-standard ICE, and they were fine about it.
