How do we make insuring a young driver cheaper?

My granddaughter, aged 18, has Just passed her driving test and needs to be mobile as her mother is partially disabled. She's been quoted £2500 to be added as a named driver on her mother's car. Is there anything we can do to make it cheaper?

Search around. Usually the bast way to reduce a youngster's insurance premiums is agree to have a Telematics 'Black Box' in the car so the insurer can monitor her driving.
