Hi All.
Doe's anyone know at what age a car becomes a Classic, Iv'e heard insurance would be cheaper.
Have i heard right.

Over 25 years is the usual cut off. Yes the insurance can be cheaper but it usually comes with a limited mileage of 2000 to 5000 miles a year. Both the age and the mileage will vary with the company. Equity Red Star used to be a good one.

I had classic policy on old motorcycle. May be other constraints, like the policy is not transferable to another vehicle if you sell the car. Best to ask at 'one-make' club for a particular make of car I reckon.

Join a Club for the type of car you have and the insurance company will give a competetive insurance. The Club you join will probably give you insurance details. The club are not likely to help non club members though. I depends on whether you pay subs I suppose.

All three answers are very informative.
The car club sounds a good idea.

if the car is made after this the DVLC will not issue free tax but the insurance company may offer better rates for insurance.
