If you've reached the age where you can learn to drive you're probably keen to get out on the road! That often means driving lessons from a qualified instructor, in which case you don't need to worry about insurance. If you're lucky enough to know someone who is willing to teach you in their car 'learner driver insurance' could be for you.
Learner driver insurance allows you to take out temporary insurance on a friend or relatives vehicle whilst you practice in it. You can get out on the road and practice as long as you are accompanied by an experienced driver who is at least 25 years old and has held a UK licence for a minimum of three years.
You could always be added as a named driver (for instance if the vehicle is your parents). That could be expensive and if you have an accident the main policy holder could lose their No Claims Bonus.
The gov.uk website has a wealth of information for learner drivers, such as:
If you're lucky enough to have a member of the family or friend who is happy to help you gain experience out on the road, don't forget those L plates on the front and back of your car (or if you're in Wales you can use a D plate). Green P plates are for those that have just passed their tests and aren't mandatory.
