Driving Home for Christmas? | Driving Test Success

Driving Home for Christmas?

Are you heading home to spend the festive season with loved ones? Are you going to have a lot of spare time in between all the celebrations? Stop twiddling your thumbs and get some extra driving practice in! 

Over the Christmas break, there are many uncontrollable factors that can get in the way of your lessons. 

If you are learning whilst at uni, it might be that your instructor is in a different location than your home over the festive period, which makes lessons kind of impossible! Or, if you are learning locally, you might find your lessons paused due to your instructor’s holiday too. 

There are many things that can get in the way, but what if we told you there was a way around this…

Our insurance partner Dayinsure has grown to be one of the UK’s leading providers of short-term car insurance and offers an insurance policy specifically for learner drivers. Their Temporary Learner Insurance offers complete driving flexibility, perfect for any quick visits at home. 

What is Temporary Learner Insurance? In simple terms, it is a type of insurance for learner drivers that allows you to get some lesson time in your own, or in a friend/relative’s car. It covers you to drive in the short term whilst being supervised.

We all find the period between Boxing Day and New Year's Eve to be the land of limbo, so the immediate advantage of taking out this policy over the Christmas break is all the free time you’ll have to utilise the cover. From one day to five months, you can choose how long you want to be covered. Home for a week? Perfect. Home for six weeks? Even better. 

As well as this, parents might have broken up for Christmas too, so get on their case and make them take you out! Nipping to do the Christmas food shop, offer to drive instead! 

Don’t let anything get in the way of you and your learning journey over the holidays. Temporary Learner Insurance was designed for moments like these when you want to continue practising but the festivities make it a bit trickier. 

Some things to note: 

  • The adult accompanying you but be a qualified driver over the age of 25.
  • They must have had a valid full GB licence for at least three years. 
  • All temporary learner insurance stops the moment you pass your test. If you take your test in the car you are insured on, make sure there is someone to drive you home from the centre. 

Give yourself the best shot at passing by getting some extra hours under your belt. With the demand for driving tests, you don’t want to waste any opportunity for a pass. Check out Dayinsure’s website here for more information. 

Merry Christmas and safe driving!
