Driving in the UK on a youth mobility visa

I moved to the UK recently on a youth mobility visa (2 years) and I would really like to drive. However, I learnt that I can't trade in my licence for a British one since I am not considered to be a permanent resident. Is there some kind of car insurance I can get even just to drive a friend's car? Could I own a car?

I think you only have to be considered a resident not a permanent resident. Resident definition for driver license means you have to normally live in the UK for 180 days per year. Offical residency is not required. You can drive on your license for 1 year if its from one of the non eu designated countries such as NZ, Australia, Canada etc
