Car Insurance for a UK Learner Driver

If you’re learning to drive and intend on using your own vehicle or your parent’s one, then you’ll need to be properly insured. We offer temporary insurance for drivers with a provisional licence that will cover you for up to 90 days on a private vehicle.

When your children are first learning to drive, it’s only natural to be cautious and worried. You can teach them in your own car by obtaining learner drive car insurance. Best of all, your no claims bonus will not be at risk in the event of an accident.

Impounded Vehicle

If you’re unfortunate enough to have your car seized, you’ll need to arrange an insurance policy before you can retrieve it. Whatever the reason your car was impounded, we can provide the necessary policy to help you reclaim it.

This can be done either through an annual insurance policy for convicted drivers or through our temporary car insurance for impounded vehicles. Temporary car insurance is a quick solution that allows you to retrieve your vehicle before it’s scrapped by the police. It also means you won’t have to invest in a full annual policy right on the spot.

Temporary Car Insurance for British Expats


Short Term Insurance for Imported Cars

When returning to the UK, some expats bring back a foreign vehicle. If you intend on doing this, you’ll benefit from arranging specific expat insurance for when you return. However, you may need temporary cover before you can register your vehicle and arrange an annual policy.

Expats Visiting Friends and FamilyA Black Mini Outside a Parking Garage

All British expats return to the UK, often to visit family and friends. When you’re back, do you have your own car or do you borrow one off a friend or family member? If you have your own car in the UK, you can save money by having a specific insurance policy for expats ready for when you arrive.

However, if you don’t have your own car, you’ll need to arrange car insurance to use another driver’s vehicle. Temporary car insurance will allow you to get covered without becoming a named driver on the owner’s policy, which often increases their premium.

Insurance for Short Term Hired Cars

Instead of borrowing a friend’s car, you may just hire a car for the weekend, week or even month you’re in town. Most people buy the car insurance that they are offered by the car hire company.

However, you’re not most people. You are smart enough to arrange stand-alone temporary car insurance with us. By doing so, you save money and have a more tailored and flexible insurance policy
