Learner Driver Insurance/New Driver Insurance

A common question we get asked by our client’s is “how can I get affordable Insurance”?

Insurance for learner driver’s and newly qualified drivers is notoriously expensive. One of the main reasons for this is simply not looking in the right place for it!

At a guess, we’d imagine your ‘go to place’ for Insurance is price comparison sites. Unfortunately,  they aren’t particularly competitive for learner drivers and inexperienced drivers.  Luckily,  there are several providers who specialise in the kind of Insurance you’re looking for and we’ve listed some of our favourites below.

We’ve based our selections on price, product content and customer service.


Marmalade provide excellent cover at great prices. Policies include-

  • Learner Driver Insurance (Short term).
  • Black Box Insurance (no curfew).
  • Named young driver insurance.
  • Pay as you use cover.

  • Cover on your own car or someone else’s car.
  • Telematics policies that determine your premium.
  • Cover for drivers with previous convictions.
  • No risk to parent’s no claims discount.

Adding Learner Driver Insurance to run alongside an existing Insurance policy is a great way to get invaluable practice in a family member or friend’s car. Alternatively, you may have your own car and wish to take out Insurance that continues beyond your driving test.

According to the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), on average it takes 45 hours of professional Driving lessons along with an additional 22 hours of private practice to adequately prepare for the UK Driving test. By getting additional private practice, you will greatly increase your chances of success!
