Can I get learner insurance on my own car?

This is a common question that we get asked – and the quick answer is yes, but there’s a bit more to it!

Marmalade’s Learner Driver Insurance covers you to drive on a friend or family member’s car while you’re on your provisional licence, so whilst this policy isn’t suitable if you have bought your own car, we do have a policy that can cover you – and the cover will continue when you pass!

What learner driver insurance can I get for a car I own?

Marmalade’s Black Box Insurance is ideal for provisional licence holders looking to insure their own car. It is a comprehensive policy covering you as the main driver both as a learner and a new qualified driver - saving you from switching policies, and saving you money, as once you’ve passed, cover continues seamlessly and the price stays the same!
Our black box allows you to monitor and develop your driving skills through our smart app and portal. There are no curfews so you can drive day or night without clock watching. The black box records your acceleration, braking and speed so you can prove you’re a safe driver – and our safest drivers earn an extra discount at renewal.

How do I get learner insurance on a car I own?

Our Black Box Insurance is designed for you to have your own insurance on your personal car before and after you complete your test. The policy is fully comprehensive while covering you as a learner so you can master those essential skills as much as you like before your test.
On passing your test, we won’t put the price of your policy up! Instead of scrambling for new insurance, simply give us a call to let us know you’re a fully qualified driver!
