Despite having a flawless driving license and no motoring or drug convictions to speak of, squeaky clean Daniel Radcliffe has to pay nearly four times (367%) more than Babyshambles front-man and notorious hell-raiser Pete Doherty for his car insurance, says Confused.com.

Daniel needs to avoid falling foul of typical teenage misdemeanours, such as speeding and driving without due care and attention. Keeping his license clean, making sure he builds up his no claims bonus, will definitely enable Daniel to reap the benefits in the next few years.

Based on 18 year-old Radcliffe registering his Fiat Punto at his Fulham address, and on 29 year-old Pete Doherty registering his Jaguar X-Type at his Wiltshire abode, Confused.com found that their annual car insurance quotes differed by up to £3,451.69, or 508%, in some instances. The colossal disparity between the stars' quotes is all the more shocking when taking into account Pete Doherty's convictions for a string of drug and driving offenses.

Debra Williams, managing director of Confused.com, says: "It is frustrating that Daniel Radcliffe, who owns a modest car and lives a 'clean' lifestyle, is expected to pay a high price for his car insurance, just because he is under the age of 25 and living in London. Despite his rock 'n' roll lifestyle, string of convictions, and swanky Jaguar X-Type, Pete Doherty's insurance is, on average, £2,680 per year cheaper than his youthful celebrity counterpart, predominantly because he is nearly a decade older.
