Car Insurance For Learner Drivers FAQs

What is Car Insurance For Learner Drivers?

Learner Driver Insurance provides cover to young drivers who want to practise their driving skills while accompanied in a friend or family member’s car before passing their test. It tends to provide comprehensive cover, which means that you are covered for third party damage, fire and theft.

If something does go wrong and you do make a claim, the good news is that Learner Driver Insurance will not affect the no claims bonus of whoever owns your car.

Why do I need Insurance for Learner Drivers?

Many learners want additional time behind the wheel outside of their driving lessons so that they can practise what they have learnt and ensure that they ace their practical test. Instead of paying for expensive additional lessons, a good alternative is to hop in a friend or family member’s car. However, in order for you to drive their car, you will need to be insured.

To ensure you’re covered while you’re on the road, you can take out Insurance for Learner Drivers. This will provide you with comprehensive cover so that you can head out on accompanied drives. 

Car Insurance for Learner Drivers can also include other useful options. For instance, if you drive with a dash cam, some policies will wave aside your compulsory excess if you need to make a claim and are able to provide footage quickly. Others will offer assistance if you need to drive home after an accident or after your practical test.

Once you have passed your test, your Learner Driver Insurance will come to an end. To make these policies even more cost-effective, you can usually choose between short-term policies of varying lengths and annual policies.

What does Learner Driver Insurance cover?

Insurance For Learner Drivers will give you cover so that you can practise driving in your parents’ car or that of a friend. It is a cost-effective alternative to becoming a named driver on the owner’s policy as it provides shorter-term cover and won’t affect the car owner’s no claims bonus.

Many Learner Driver Insurance policies are fully comprehensive, which means that your insurance will cover any injury to yourself and third parties, as well as damage to your car and anyone else’s in an accident. 

It also means you can make a claim even if the accident is your fault.

To cover your driving, you will need to be accompanied by someone who is over the age of 25 and has had a valid full UK driving licence for at least 3 years.

Learner Driver Insurance can be taken out by those with a provisional driving licence aged from 17 up to 34 (for some policies).
