    DANG... why so
    much??
    In Ireland I had what we call "fully comprehensive" insurance,
    basically covers you for EVERYTHING, no cap on claims and cost be $350
    a year, the policies there are much better than anything you can buy
    here.

    Last year I was driving my dad's old 1991 Buick
    LeSabre with no fancy features, and paid minimal insurance premiums.
    This year when I bought the new car, it zoomed up. Some of it is an
    added fee that Honda requires. Naturally! Oh well...I absolutely love
    the car! It's well worth it.

    Ouch! That does not sound right. Were you inquiring as the spouse or
    SO? My auto premium did not go up a dime when adding my UK spouse (may
    have even gone down). Not happy with the homeowner's policy now, so
    shopping again (ack).
    my buddy clarkhoward.com has some good insurance
    tips, too

    Well online it just asks how many drivers there are, does not mention
    anything about being a spouse or not.

    Congratulations to you both!

    Mr. Pink studied the Rules of the Road for
    several weeks before he went to take his test. We had all our
    documentation ready to hand over, but the minute he started speaking,
    the lady behind the counter looked at me google-eyed and crooned, "don't
    you just *love* his accent?"

    I had brought a book to read for when
    he took the driving part of the exam, and I swear he was gone literally
    5 minutes. He came walking in, smiling, but I thought for certain he
    must have crashed the car in those five minutes---why didn't it take
    longer?

    I suppose it was because he was a licensed driver for a long
    time in the UK and had driven with me quite a bit before taking the
    test. Or maybe it was just his accent.

    Congratulations again---
    another hurdle jumped!
