What is learner driver insurance?

The DVSA recommends 22 hours of private practice before taking the driving test. But getting added to a friend or family member’s insurance can be expensive. And, if you have an accident, it could badly affect their no claims bonus.

Hourly learner driver insurance makes it easier and cheaper for you to get out on the road for some important driving practice. You can borrow a friend or family member’s car and get covered from just two hours to 90 days.

You’ll only need to pay for what you use, and the car owner’s no claim bonus will remain completely unaffected. They’ll be so thrilled that it won’t be hard to persuade them to take you out for a spot of practice!

On-demand insurance

Specifically for learner drivers, this on-demand insurance has got you covered whenever you’re in the driver’s seat of your chosen car with a supervising driver and your L plates on. It’ll even protect you during your driving test (but not once you’ve passed!).

By law, all drivers have to be covered by an insurance policy when they’re out on the road. But knowing you’re protected if something goes wrong will also give you that all-important peace of mind while you’re behind the wheel.

Commonly asked questions

Do I need to insure a learner driver on my car?

If a learner driver is going to be driving your car, they’ll need to be insured on it. However, car insurance premiums for young people are usually super high since they’re more likely to be involved in an accident and make a claim. That means adding them as a named driver to your own insurance policy can often be pricey.

With hourly learner driver insurance, you only need to pay for what the learner uses, which makes it easier for them to head out for some practice when and where they fancy. Plus, if they have an accident, your no claims bonus will remain completely unaffected!

Bear in mind that in order to drive your car, the learner driver will need to be with a supervising driver - that’s anyone aged 21 or over, who has held a full UK driving licence for at least three years - with L plates attached to the car.

Veygo’s learner driver insurance works in addition to any cover already in place on the car (excluding Motor Trade or Fleet policies), and so it’s not suitable if the learner owns the car they’re driving in.

How do you insure a learner driver?

To insure a learner driver on a car that’s not their own, you can either add them onto an existing insurance policy as a ‘named driver’ or get a quick and simple quote for a learner driver insurance policy.

If they have their own car, they’ll need to take out a full policy on their provisional licence, but it’s likely to have a high premium!

Getting a quote for learner driver insurance with Veygo only takes two minutes - simply enter the car’s registration number, the postcode of where it’s kept, and a bit about the learner and you’re sorted. This on-demand insurance allows learners to get insured from just two hours to 90 days. Remember to enter the promo code MIDRIVE for 10% off, and then enjoy instant cover!

Adding the learner to an existing insurance policy can be costly and risks affecting the car owner’s no claim’s bonus in the event of a bump. Hourly learner driver insurance leaves the owner’s no claims bonus unaffected and means that the learner only needs to pay for what they use.

Can you get car insurance with a provisional licence?

Yes, you can get car insurance with a learner’s licence. During driving lessons with a qualified instructor, you’ll be covered by their instructor insurance. However, if you’re planning on heading out for some private practice between lessons, you’ll need to get car insurance by law!

The DVSA recommends 22 hours of private practice before taking the practical driving test, so make sure that you factor in the cost of car insurance when you’re budgeting for learning to drive. If you opt for hourly learner driver insurance, you’ll only need to pay for what you use - whether that’s just two hours or 90 days.

When you’re out and about on the road with your provisional licence, make sure that you’re accompanied by a suitable supervising driver (anyone who’s aged 21 or over and who’s held a UK driving licence for at least three years) and that you display your L plates. If you don’t, you’ll not only be breaking the law, but you won’t be covered by your learner driver insurance either.

So, get yourself covered and head out for a spot of practice. You’ll be swapping your learner’s licence for a full driving licence before you know it.
