I have seen your request and rather than close it, i have edited others replies, or removed them.

The guy asked for sensible answers and people should give them, dont slate the guy, having been in the wrong myself over a driving incident I know how bad this feels.

Anyways - in my opinion do as odders said and try a 1.0 or 1.2 litre nova, maybe get a nova saloon this may be cheaper as not so desirable to theives as a normal modded nova.

I think your plan is right to get a small capacity car and then wait till you have some no claims etc and your insurance will eb cheaper but i think as you do you may need to wait 2-3 maybe 4 years before you get another high powered car.

no problems

good luck for the theory, if you have driven before it shouldnt be too hard, keep your fingers crossed!!

as for the other convictions etc, i personally would put them in the past, and get on with the rest of your life, change what needs changing and get on with it whilst remembering not to slip back to your old ways,

look in the back of car mags (i.e max power/redline etc etc) for adverts for insurance companys who cover drivers with criminal convictions, ring around as many insurance companys as u possibly can,yes its boring but it may save u a few hundred quid ;) :D
