The 18-year-old was looking to insure a £400 Daewoo Matiz with an 800cc engine

UK-based Kaljeet Bansal passed her driving test last week but was shocked when her cheapest car insurance quote came in at almost £20,000, according to a media report.

The 18-year-old was looking to insure a £400 Daewoo Matiz with an 800cc engine, the report added.

Bansal used price comparison websites including Confused.com to get quotes, with only two insurance companies willing to insure her.

Goodgirl.co.uk’s quote came in at £19,996.91, while Flux Direct’s quote was £33,845.22.

Bansal brother has also spoken to insurance companies over the phone on her behalf. However, there was no response from the insurers.

Some of the reasons attributed for massive insurance quote would be the area of driving test and Bansal’s age or the car.

According to Kaljeet, driving would open more doors as she’s looking for a job now she’s finished school, but that has been taken away, the report added.
