Convertible that are low on insurance

Nissan Micra C+C
Daihatsu Copen
Fiat 500C

These are probably best bets for modern cars. You might be better off going for a retro classic, as a specialist broker, like Adrian Flux, is likely to have some good rates for these.

Mk1 Golf
Classic Mini or Beetle

Do they test for drugs as well as alcohol during the DVLA medical?

Yes they do. They take blood and urine. They definitely test your urine for drugs but I''m not sure if what they check your blood for. I'm hoping it's just for alcohol (liver function). They take blood pressure and want to check your body for any scars? Random I know. Hope this helps.

Do they test for drugs as well as alcohol during the DVLA medical?

I have recently taken the medical I am not dependant on alcohol or drugs but i do ocasionally use both, I have been drinking less than 2 weekly last month but before that hadnt been out for months, the last time I smoked cannabis was ages ago and I did do some pills on new years eve.

I told all this to the doctor even though I could have lied because I know the drugs wont be in my system, when I say drugs I mean the pills new years eve so 9 months ago and a bit of weed ages ago. I am waiting on my results the doctor said he couldnt see a reason I wouldn't get my licence back but because of the admissions I made to my past they might request a drug test. What's your opinions people and for any one whos got a medical coming up I hope you find this usefull and I will let you know what happens next.

Drug driving medical test

If you're talking about THC levels and your a regular smoker, (every day), then you could be looking at 90 days because it gets stored in your fat cells. If your an occasional smoker then it could be up to 30 days. There are no hard and fast rules. It all depends on your fitness, height, weight, metabolism, diet and amount of liquid you drink. Don't bother with any of those detox's, the consensus is they don't work. There is lots of info out there but that's the gist.

Filling in my form D46P for over 70s

i very recently sent in same form, but foolishly wrong, health questions are confusing, and got mine back, what i did, was where it says yes and no, i put a cross in box no, and proceeded to cross every condition, thinking i should because, i had none of those conditions, however when i studied the question properly, if you do not have any of said conditions, you leave boxes blank. not sure this will help, but hope some where along the line it has.

Instructor says I'm not ready for the test after 44 driving lessons with him

I booked my practical test but my driving instructor said that I cannot take the test in his car, all this after 44 lessons with him and another 13 lessons with another instructor 2 years previously. According to my instructor I'm not ready yet he wants me to do manoeuvres instead to improve my driving skills but I think the only reason why he denied me to take my test is that he want to have more money from me, because I have paid him in cash.

My son is getting his first car and I intended to be a named driver on his policy for possible occasional use. I am also insured in my own right for my vehicle and third party for other vehicles.

I had an accident in my van but unknowingly I was not the registered keeper at the time, is my insurance valid?

I had the use of a van from work. I insured it in my name and was told by my boss he would register it in my name. I had an RTA. My insurer asked if I was the registered keeper...I said yes (as I believed I would be).

At the time of the RTA I was not officially the reg keeper. Will this be checked?

Please help as I'm in sick with stress over this matter.....

Thanks to anyone that can help

Do you have to change names on car finance to become registered/legal owner?

Hi! I currently have a car that was bought for me after my last one blew up! :)

Because i travel 20 miles a day to work i needed a car that was reliable so my mum got me a brand new one on finance and at the time i was only 20 so i could not get finance in my name. Now i am nearly 22 and need to change the name on the DVLA documents into my name to reduce insurance costs, however the car is registered in her name because of the finance (it is a 5 year contract and 1 year has already elapsed). I was therefore wondering is there anyway the contract could be rewritten or put in my name. Im already paying the finance into her account and i have a good job so there would be no problem paying the money. I am currently registered as the main driver and it is only me on the insurance.

Recently had the clutch and mass flywheel replaced why is my clutch making a rumbling noise until it is depressed and then it stops!

Hiya had a few problems with my ford mondeo it's a 2004 tdi, had an MOT which cost me over 500 quid to repair the fuel pipes and other bits then not even two weeks later the clutch went...or so I thought!

When I got it to the garage they told me the problem was caused by a valve which had blown and it would be nearly 900 quid to repair as they needed to change the flywheel as well!!! I was not impressed and got it taken somewhere else as to be honest, they had tried to tell me that the gearbox was a bit noisy and I should look at a new car before the MOT given that they were a car sales!!

Anyway I eventually got the job done for a lot cheaper but since they did it and replaced the clutch, the clutch makes a low rumbling sound until it is depressed and then it i'm being told it is probably the release lever or a bearing...shouldn't they have done this when they replaced the valve the clutch and the flywheel?

It now sounds terrible when driving and worse than before!

Problem with Global pre-paid calling card

I bought a global international calling card to talk to my family abroad and got cut off during the conversation. When I made the call, I had £3.50 left but when we got cut off, I was promted that I had £3.00 now remaining. I waited like 3 mins before I call again but I got a message saying that I do not have sufficient funds to make that call. So I just lost £3, isn't that a rip off?
