What is New Driver Insurance?

Once you pass your driving test and become a qualified driver, you’ll need car insurance.

NuBee is an insurance policy designed exclusively for customers that have held a Collingwood Learner Driver policy and just passed their driving test.

Learner driver insurance will no longer cover you to drive when you pass your test, but you may have a tough time finding cheap insurance as a new driver.

That is why we created NuBee, to help keep your costs down and make sure you stay on the road!

Tips which may help reduce the cost of New Driver car insurance

Keep Your Mileage Low
Don't make unnecessary trips. This will help to keep your mileage low. As you won't be on the road as much you're less likely to be involved in an accident.
Choose a Higher Voluntary Excess
Choosing a higher excess will appear favourable to not making frivolous insurance claims.
Pay For Your Insurance Annually
Paying for your new driver insurance in one payment can work out cheaper as you won't pay as much interest.
Use a Telematics Box
Telematics based insurance, like NuBee, monitors your driving and can improve your driving skills making you a safer driver.
Buy a Sensible Car
Buying a smaller, less powerful car can save you money as they're often safer to drive and not targeted by thieves as often.
Add a Named Driver
Adding a more experienced driver will let insurers know it won't be just you driving, so this can reduce the cost.
