Discover insurance options for new drivers looking to get on the road for the first time
Getting on the road as a new driver can be a daunting time for both you, and your parents! So many decisions, and the cost of cover can be eyewatering. To make it a bit less stressful – we’ve created a guide to the insurance that’s available for new drivers to help new drivers find more affordable insurance.
Once size doesn’t fit all when it comes to getting on the road. Let’s face it, not everyone will have their own car from the word go – but we don’t think that should stop you getting on the road. Of course, we offer insurance for new drivers on their own car, but we also offer flexible options on a car you borrow!

Why is young driver insurance so expensive?
It’s an unfortunate fact that young drivers are statistically more likely to be involved in an accident than more experienced drivers. Young drivers are a higher risk group, and unfortunately, higher risk inevitably equals higher premiums. All is not lost though – black box insurance can help young drivers get on the road in a more affordable way – as they can prove themselves as safe drivers and earn a discount at renewal based on their own driving score. Drivers with a black box are also less likely to be involved in an accident, so having one will increase the likelihood that you’ll earn your No Claims Discount!
Why does Marmalade only insure young drivers?
We understand it may be frustrating if you’d read about our cover, to discover you’re not eligible due to your age. Our aim isn’t to discriminate against older drivers, but to help the niche market of young drivers so all of our products are tailored around the needs of this community, who historically have had limited options when it comes to getting insured before and after their driving test.
