What Is Young Learner Driver Insurance?

Young Learner Driver insurance is an insurance product aimed at young people who are learning to drive. It specifically caters for learner drivers, taking all the risks associated with someone who hasn’t passed their practical test yet, into account.

Instead of being added to the insurance policy of a friend or relative, which could cause their premium to skyrocket, you get your own specially tailored Learner Drivers insurance policy. This may even be cheaper than being added to another person’s insurance policy, plus you will also start building up your own No Claims Bonus.

A young learner driver policy will be similar to Car insurance for young drivers under 21, as it will provide the same level of cover (Third Party Only, Third Party, Fire & Theft, and Comprehensive), and will also require the fitting of a black box. The black box is fitted to your car (out of sight behind the dashboard) and it measures how you are driving. The better you drive, the higher your score, and the higher your score, the bigger your discount could be at renewal.

Do I Need Young Learner Driver Insurance?

Anyone who drives on UK roads must have the correct insurance, which will be at least ‘securing against third party risks’. This is usually called Third Party Only insurance, and is often the minimum level of cover available.

The Driving Standards Agency recommends you get 20 hours of extra practice outside of your regular driving lessons, so it would be a good idea, if you have access to a car, to get young Learner Driver insurance and get practicing out on the road.
