Why consider Black Box Insurance?

No risk to your No Claims Discount

If your teen opts for a Named Young Driver policy on a parent’s car, it’ll be a standalone policy which sits alongside your own insurance cover. That means, if they are involved in an incident, it won’t impact your own No Claims Discount.

Comprehensive cover from learner to full licence

Whether your teen is a named driver on your car or a main driver on their own vehicle, a Black Box Insurance policy will cover them whilst they’re learning and beyond, with no price increase following a test pass.

Start building their No Claims Discount

Getting behind the wheel with Black Box Insurance gives your young driver the chance to build their own No Claims Discount – even before they’ve got their full licence – which could help them when their renewal rolls round.

No curfews

Driving opens the door to independence, so why should your teen have to stick to driving in daylight? Black Box cover through Marmalade gives them the freedom to drive when they want to whilst monitoring their progress.

Choose from two cover options

What’s the cheapest way to get insured on a parent’s car?

That’s the million-dollar question, right? The truth is that it depends on your circumstances. If you’re looking for temporary car insurance on a parent's car then a stand-alone short-term policy may be the best option (and least hassle) as it can be quickly organised online and won’t affect the main insurance.

If you’re looking for annual cover, getting a quote for our annual insurance on a parent’s car could potentially result in a lower premium than adding a young driver to the main policy.

Frequently asked questions

How do you know who is driving the car?arrow

After a while, the tag and app will begin to recognise different driving styles and will assign trips to the policyholder or named drivers accordingly. However, if a trip is wrongly assigned, you can re-assign the trip in the app. Please be aware that dishonestly re-assigning your trips could result in cancellation of your insurance.

To ensure the phone pairs with the telematics tag, Bluetooth must be enabled, and the phone should be charged to a minimum of 10% throughout the journey.

Is it dual insurance?arrow

It won’t affect the main insurance at all! This insurance cover is a policy that covers your young driver whilst they’re behind the wheel. 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. Cover is only provided under this policy for them. The main insurance covers the vehicle and named drivers - therefore it does not cover the same risk as the main policy.
