Young drivers car insurance is some of the most expensive in the industry and drivers are finding loopholes to save on their insurance premiums.

That's according to industry experts, who are saying many young drivers are asking an older adult to take on the car insurance policy themselves.

This is known as 'fronting' and doing this is illegal; car insurance providers take a very dim view of this, even calling it an act of fraud.

The practice works by an older, more experienced driver acting as the primary named driver. In reality, these primary drivers rarely even touch the wheel, with young drivers making the most of their cheaper car insurance as a secondary driver.

This is breaking the law and many car insurance policies are invalidated if insurance providers find out this is going on.ADNFCR-3010-ID-19559556-ADNFCR
