Learner Insurance FAQs

Do I need to own a car to take out learner driver insurance?

No, learner driver insurance is designed to act as a secondary policy whilst you are driving a car owned or registered by someone else. It is designed for provisional drivers who wish to insure a specified vehicle which they intend to use for practicing their driving skills outside of their lessons booked with us.

It’s important to note however that the vehicle must remain insured by the owner throughout the term of your learner driver insurance policy.

Is there a minimum age for the person supervising a learner?

Yes, all learner supervisors must be a qualified driver aged 21 or over who has held a full UK driving licence for more than 3 years. For safety, the Marmalade learner policy increases the minimum age of a supervisor to 25.

If I supervise a learner who has a Marmalade policy in my vehicle would my no claims discount be affected if we were to have an accident?

Provided that the learner you are supervising has a valid Marmalade learner driver insurance policy in place, your no claims discount is safe.

Is there a minimum term for the learner driver insurance?

Marmalade offer the choice of 30, 60, 90, 180- or 365-days cover – prices will vary based on the term of the cover.

What happens when I pass my driving test?

As soon as you pass your test, your learner insurance policy is no longer valid. If you take the test in a BSM car the instructor will drive you home. However, if you take the test in another vehicle you will need to ensure that a fully qualified driver, who is appropriately insured, is available to drive you home.
