Learner Driver insurance

Insurance a car for a new driver is always hard and why should you insure the car so that the learner driver can use it all the time? Provisional Licence holders need to be accompanied while they are learning and so there mab be extended periodswhen they are not able to dirve. For a low cost  Motor Insurance option for Provisional Licence Holders why not Insure yourself to drive someone elses car, without risking their valuable No Claims Bonus, and just pay for the times that you use the vehicle?

To provide a simple on-line solution for these circumstances we have entered into a professional partnership with Provisional Marmalade who provide a range of Learner Driver insurances temporary vehicle insurances from 1 to 3 months at a time.

Learning to drive is one of the most important events in a young person’s life and as soon as they turn 17 they are keen to get behind the wheel.

On the other hand, many parents are reluctant to allow their children to practice in their cars because of the cost of the insurance or the worry that their no claims bonus could be at risk.

Now there’s an answer – the Provisional Marmalade policy provides cover for learner drivers whilst practicing in a car owned by someone else.

For example, you can use the Provisional Marmalade policy to cover your parent’s or a friend’s car whilst you learn to drive, without any risk to their insurance.  It’s a simple way to get behind the wheel without paying large extra premiums for learner drivers on a standard motor policy.

And any claim arising from the policy does not affect the car owner’s policy or their no claims discount.

 

What is Covered

Does the policy also cover other learner drivers driving the same car?

No, the policy only covers the named learner driver in the named vehicle.
