As with all insurance policies, it is important to carefully check your policy wording to check that it is suitable for all your requirements.
Cover for learner drivers is different from insurance for Young Drivers who have already passed their driving test.
Insurers class learner and new drivers to be high risk due to lack of driving experience and the fact that statistically, they are more likely to make a claim on their insurance than any other insurance group, regardless of their standard of driving.
Getting in the driver’s seat…
If you are taking driving instruction/lessons with a professional driving instructor, they will have their own insurance policy which will cover you when you take your lessons, so you will not require your own separate policy.
However, if you want to practice your driving skills outside of your regular driving lessons, perhaps with a relative or a friend, you may be able to be added to their car insurance policy as a learner driver.
It is common for policies to specify that learner and new drivers being added to such a policy must not drive a car worth over £20,000 and that the person accompanying you must be over 21 years of age (sometimes 25) with at least 3 years driving experience.
