What is learner driver insurance?

Learner driver insurance is a type of cover specially designed for people learning to drive. It gives you more opportunity to learn to drive in a family member or friend's car, so you can reduce driving lesson costs while preserving the car owner's No Claims Bonus**. This can be affected if they add you to their insurance and you have an accident.

You can also get learner driver insurance for your own car, and with it you'll have the opportunity to start earning your own accelerated No Claims Bonus**.

What are my learner driver insurance options?


Our annual learner's insurance starts from as little as 70p per day*. It's perfect if you're a brand-new learner starting to drive, and because the policy will be in your own name, you can earn your own accelerated No Claims Bonus** too.

Why to choose Annual cover:
✓ You have only just started learning and need lots of practice
✓ You do not have a driving test that is soon
✓ You want to save some money practicing with a supervising driver rather than an instructor


Short-term learner's insurance is available from 28 days to 24 weeks with the ability to top up from just 7 days. Our short-term learner driver insurance policies are flexible – you can have gaps in your cover and top up when required.

Why to choose short-term cover:
✓ You want to take your driving test in your car
✓ You only have access to the car for a short period of time
✓ Your test is soon and you want to get a few weeks of extra practice

Frequently asked questions

Can I take my test in my car?

You’ll be delighted to hear the answer is yes you can.  Please note that once you sit your test your supervising driver must drive you home straight after the test regardless of whether you pass or fail. When you pass please then contact us to cancel your policy. Good luck!

Who can supervise me when I'm learning to drive?

Anyone who is over 21 years of age and who has held a valid full UK/EU Licence for at least 3 years can sit in the front seat with you while your practice driving.

You can start to build your no claims bonus whilst you have a learner driver policy with Collingwood. Providing your policy runs for 10 consecutive months without any accidents or incidents this will be accelerated to 1 years no claims bonus.

Is there a mileage limit?

Great news!  There are no mileage limits on our short term or annual learner driver policies, you can drive as much or as little as you wish.

Do I need a black box fitted?

Great news! There is no need for a black box fitted to the car on our learner driver policies as you will be supervised at all times.
