We can't offer women cheaper premiums than men, but every person is different, and so is every risk, so if you're a young woman looking for car insurance, we can still do all the hard work of shopping around for the best price.

Just spend a few minutes on the phone or online - Girl Motor will do the rest!

Liking the Ford EcoSport, a compact SUV with some nice features. Great for town and city driving. And the slightly higher driving position gives better visibility for us ladies who are slightly...vertically challenged, shall we say!

An "endlessly sociable" Rolls Royce? Go on then...
Rolls Royce launches new convertible model, "Dawn", with women firmly in mind. A shame, then, that the promotional video only shows ladies in the back seat, but still, a dream car. Name me the woman who wouldn't want a car described by Rolls Royce as "endlessly sociable"? Yours for just £250,000 or thereabouts.

Is the UK Driving Test Testing Enough?

The driving test is 80 years old and the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) says it needs a comprehensive overhaul to keep it relevant to the problems faced by young people on the road.

In 1996 a theory test was added to the practical element and from 2002 learners also had to pass a hazard perception exam.

However, the driving test does not include any testing of a driver’s ability to cope safely with country roads, poor weather or driving at night – which have been identified as risk factors in the first six months after passing the test.

Road accidents remain the biggest killer of young people in the UK, higher than both alcohol and drugs. In 2013 there were 191 people under 24 killed and 20,003 injured as drivers and riders of cars and motorbikes.

Do you think that the driving test is an adequate test of a new driver's ability to stay safe on the road?
