Student Driver Insurance
You’ve passed your test, but you’re heading to university soon. Maybe you’re at uni already and fancy a road trip in the holidays – what should you do about getting access to a car when you’re at home?
Being a named driver can be expensive, and you don’t need a whole year anyway because you’re not home for most of it. Plus, mum and dad are a bit nervous about their No Claims Discount…
Is there car insurance that’s good for students?
Absolutely! There are a few short-term policies out there, but it’s worth looking for one that is specifically for students, because it will have been designed with you in mind.
Whether you want to use the car for a week, or a month, specialist student driver insurance will be able to cater for your needs.
Will I be covered as the main driver?
No – in the same way that being a named driver doesn’t make you the main driver of the car, neither do these short-term policies. The difference with having a student driver insurance policy, is that you will have your own insurance that sits alongside the owner’s, and it doesn’t risk their No Claims Discount!
Can I renew if I need longer?
Yes – it’s great to have the flexibility to add more time on to the policy if you need it. A last-minute weekend away, an unexpected chance to head to a festival, needing to get all your stuff to your new digs; you can take out another 7, 14, 21, or 28 days once your first policy ends!
