What is Learner Driver Insurance?

Marmalade's Learner Driver Insurance helps you to get those all-important extra hours of driving practice in a parent’s or friend’s car

Fully comprehensive

Learner insurance can be short term cover or annual cover that sits alongside the main policy, providing fully comprehensive cover when you're behind the wheel – while you are practising, and during your driving test, if needed.

No risk to NCD

The great news is that there is no risk to the car owner’s No Claims Discount if you need to make a claim on your Learner Insurance. They’ll be so delighted we’re sure they’ll take you out for lots of practice!

Affordable, flexible cover

Adding a learner to a policy can be expensive, and some insurers won’t offer cover. Our flexible insurance from 30 days to a year means you can buy cover in affordable chunks without affecting the main insurance.

Frequently asked questions

Who can supervise my driving? Plus Icon

Any driver who is over 25, who currently holds a current valid full UK driving licence, and has done for at least three years, can supervise you. It doesn't even need to be the person who owns the car. Of course, you'll need the permission of whoever owns the car - we're sure you knew that anyway!

Can I change the car on the policy? Plus Icon

Provided it meets the criteria of our policy and you contact us to update the vehicle details, you can change the car you are insured to drive in.

Can I drive any car? Plus Icon

The policy only covers you for driving the car you took your policy out for. But don't worry, you can always take out another policy for any other cars you might wish to drive. And you can even switch to a different car partway through your cover.

What happens when I pass my driving test? Plus Icon

Cover will stop immediately when you pass, so make sure you have someone to drive you home!

If you have purchased a 1 year policy, please advise us on passing your test as you may be entitled to a refund, provided you have not made a claim. This is based on the number of days left of the policy, minus a £50 administration fee. Please read our Terms of Business for full information.

Thinking about buying a car when you pass? It's worth looking at our Cars for Young Drivers which combines a new car and free insurance for the first 12 months, or an insurance contribution! (depending on your postcode)

Can a learner driver insure their own car? Plus Icon

No not with this policy. The policy is designed to sit alongside an existing motor policy of a car owned by someone else. Take a look at our New Driver Insurance, which is designed to cover you to drive your own car and will cover you on a provisional and full licence!

My parents are worried it will affect their insurance. Is this dual insurance? Plus Icon

It won't affect the main insurance at all! Marmalade Learner Driver Insurance is a temporary risk policy on the learner driver. Here is the technical bit… Dual Insurance occurs when, in the case of insurance against loss or damage, the same items are insured against a certain risk under more than one insurance policy. Our Learner Driver Insurance provides cover for drivers who hold a provisional UK licence and are not named in the main insurance policy covering the vehicle and therefore it does not cover the same risk as the main policy.
