The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild review: Five hours with Zelda on the Nintendo Switch
My son is about to start driving lessons, he is 19. Is anyone aware of a good insurance company that deals particularly with learner drivers?
When my daughter had completed a number of driving lessons and just needed more practice before taking her test, I insured her with this company click here for a couple of months. Hope this helps!
I hope you don't have any heart condition before finding out how much it will cost to insure him.
We bought our daughter a Ford KA to learn to drive in, but it worked out cheaper for my wife to insure it as hers and have my daughter as named driver.
Cost for year £900.
Just a cautionary note about 'named drivers' (ocassional drivers) -
something I heard recently on tv, is that in the event of an accident, insurance is deemed invalid
if the 'named driver' is in fact the main driver, and not the occassional driver the insurance covers.
Hard to explain but couple of instances:
The named driver attends university at the other end of the country. Obviously that make them the main driver and not an ocassional driver, and as such, insurance premiums should have been higher.
The policy holder appears to have more than one car insured. The circumstances would be queried as to who really is the main driver and who is the ocassional driver.
The consequence is far reaching. The policy would be cancelled. This would have to be declared by the policy holder when taking out future insurances. (One of the questions is "have you ever had a policy cancelled?").
The named driver would not have actually been insured and the obvious consequences would ensue.
Not sure if I have explained it properly, but I know the item on the tv really made me think twice.
Caver what you are doing is called fronting and is illegal,in the event of a serious accident you will find you are uninsured
A number of insurance companies have become very cautious about 'named drivers' especially if they are of low age or learner category. Best to make 100% sure that the insurance company knows your intentions, because wrong information will invalidate an insurance policy.
On my present insurance, I can have 'named drivers' but the premium will reflect on age and experience plus extra/higher 'excess' rates if making a claim.
going to broker than an insurance company. Go the yellow pages and ring the insurance companies that free phone numbers and c how much they will quote.
Beware if you try to go for a quote on the internet you initially be given one quote and the when you go back to the them they have increased the premium.
Just a year ago when I was learning, the best quote I got was from Tesco, though Direct Line had a good one too.
Many thanks for all your comments.
I am sadly aware that I will have to pay over the odds. That said, as I get into my dotage, at least I know I will be able to call on him for a lift to get my pension...
Before you accuse me or my wife of doing anything illegal read my posting correctly.
I said that my wife has insured it for herself and my daughter has driving lessons in it.
She has no full licence so how can she drive on her own.
