LEARNER DRIVER CAR INSURANCE
Learning to drive is exciting, but in order to gain experience behind the wheel you will need car insurance in place. It’s the law.
Car insurance from Go Girl when on a provisional licence brings you peace of mind that you’re fully covered at a price you can afford.
Even if you’re learning to drive with an instructor, you may want time outside of your lessons to practice. You can drive your own car, or one belonging to a friend or family member as long as they have car insurance and your car insurance covers you for that particular car.
Taking out your own car insurance on your provisional driving licence will also mean you can begin to build up your No Claims Discount as soon as you start to drive.
If you don’t have your own car insurance policy and are just a named driver on another policy you wouldn’t be able to earn a No Claims Discount.
Flexible insurance for provisional drivers
Learner driver insurance can be expensive, because young and inexperienced drivers are considered to be high risk by some insurance companies. Not only do we aim to offer cheap provisional car insurance, we fully understand the needs of learner drivers, too.
We offer insurance cover for drivers as young as 17 and we make it easy for you to get the cover you need. Simply get a quote and instant cover online in minutes.
Adding a driver to your policy
You need to have your own appropriate insurance in place when you practice driving in your own car. You can add a more experienced, older driver onto the policy as a ‘named driver’. This could be a parent or other relative or older friend who will sit with you in the car as you learn to drive.
The person who accompanies you in the car when you are driving must be over the age of 21 and be qualified to drive the type of vehicle you want to learn in. For example, if you are learning in a manual car they must have a manual car licence. They must also have held a full driving licence for at least three years.
Driving without insurance
It’s against the law to drive without insurance. You can get an unlimited fine and even be banned from driving if you’re caught driving without insurance. You can also get up to 8 penalty points on your licence and this will make it very hard, if not impossible, for you to get insurance.
Go Girl will be with you all the way as you start the exciting journey towards passing your driving test.
