His car is a "P" registration, British insurance companies will only pay market value, & that car is at least 13 years old, so he'll get a few hundred at most, & that's only if he has comprehensive cover, a lot of young owners, only have 3rd party, fire & theft, in which he'll get zilch, worse still, he may have bought it on monthly payments.

ive got fully comp on mine, but ive got a huge excess (400). the insurance companies really dont want to insure young drivers, they make it stupidly expensive (esp for guys)

soory, but i dont know where you got your info from, but a P reg car is only 8/9 years old. and the payout will be for the current market value. the book price is only a guide.

Yeah, P isant really that old.

Dependant on which insurance company you are with, they will give you the value that the car is at. Our car insurance company find 10 of our cars for sale, find the average price, and give us that..(if we claimed of course)

My dad bought a brand new car in late 1996, and it was a P reg.

Here's a quick guide, if you're interested: http://www.theaa.com/cbg/goodadvice/...=number_plates

It covers the new system as well.
