What insurance is required for learner drivers

In the UK, drivers with a provisional licence are required to have insurance in order to practice driving on the road. There are a few options for obtaining insurance for a provisional licence holder:

1.  Named driver policy: This type of policy allows a provisional licence holder to be added as a named driver on a parent or guardian's insurance policy. This can be a cost-effective option for those who only need to practice driving for a limited amount of time.

2.  Provisional licence insurance policy: Some insurance companies offer policies specifically designed for provisional licence holders. These policies usually have restrictions and limitations, such as restrictions on the type of car that can be driven, but can provide a more flexible and affordable option for learners.

3. Dual control car insurance: For those taking driving lessons with an instructor, dual control car insurance is a good option. This type of insurance covers the learner driver and the instructor while they are practicing in a dual control car.

It's important to shop around and compare different insurance options to find the best coverage and rates for your needs. Additionally, it's crucial to remember that driving without insurance is illegal and can result in significant fines and penalties.
