Can I get learner insurance to cover my driving test?
All Marmalade’s insurance policies for learner drivers will cover provisional licence holders during their driving test, provided the DVSA requirements are met. If you choose an annual policy, the cover will continue seamlessly after you pass. However, our short term learner insurance will cease as soon as you pass your driving test – so you will need someone to drive you home!
Is black box insurance good for learner drivers?
Yes – we think so! Black box insurance policies allow drivers to reflect on their journeys and review where they may be making mistakes, so this is super helpful for someone who is still learning how to drive. They can see where the driving is good and under control, and also areas where they can improve. Marmalade young drivers are also nearly 4 times safer¹ than the national average because of the black box technology
Can you earn NCD on a provisional licence?
