Learner Driver Car Insurance from as little as £1.89 per day

With our learner driver cover you can practice in your own car whilst under instruction, alternatively learning in a family member's or friend's car can also be covered without risking their no claims bonus. This specialist short-term scheme is ideal for learners as it runs weekly or monthly so you only pay for what you need before passing your test. The cover is flexible and young drivers are able to choose the length of cover they need from 7 days to 24 weeks.

  • Insure your own car or a family car
  • Cover available from 7 days to 24 weeks
  • Online quotations available
  • UK call centre
  • Payment options

We can insure young drivers for cars up to Group 32, and a maximum market value of £20,000 including premium models such as an Audi A4 2.0 or BMW 535D. We believe this makes our learner driver car insurance an ideal scheme for learner drivers, as it can be cheaper and more convenient to insure the family car than buying a new one to practice in.

Short term learner driver insurance

Many learner drivers only need short-term insurance, designed to cover them specifically when learning. Our short-term policy means you can legally drive while you learn in a parent, guardian, relative or friend's car without affecting their existing insurance policy.

This can also add additional convenience for learners who may then wish to buy their own car once they’ve passed, avoiding the need to get a full 12-month policy.

Get extra practice before your test with learner car insurance

The Driving Standards Agency recommends 47 hours of professional tuition, as well as around 20 hours of additional practice for new drivers, before being ready to take a test.

Driving schools include insurance in the cost of their lessons, but if you can get additional practice with a friend or family member, it can really help speed up the process of learning to drive.
