Our specialist learner driver insurance – also known as provisional driver insurance – provides cover for provisional licence holders as they receive driving tuition.

It insures the learner driver directly when they are driving their own car or another vehicle.

It is valid when the learner is accompanied by a driver aged over 25 who has held a full driving licence for a minimum of three years.

  • Specialist insurance for young learner drivers
  • Specifically designed for provisional licence holders
  • An affordable alternative to adding a learner as a named driver to another policy
  • Dash cam endorsement to wipe out compulsory excess (see below)
  • To aid learning continuity and frequency, parents can be added as named drivers*
  • Comprehensive and Third Party Fire & Theft learner driver insurance

Why take out learner driver insurance?

One good reason is cost. Often it is cheaper to take out a policy in the learner’s name, than to add them as a named driver to another car insurance policy.

Also, with this policy, should the learner driver need make a claim when driving an insured car they do not own, it will not affect the no claims bonus of the vehicle’s owner.

Another, even more compelling reason, is that it is of course a legal requirement to be insured when learning to drive on public roads!

Young learners

The cover we offer is specifically designed for holders of a provisional driving licence aged between 17 and 21 years.
