What is temporary learner insurance?

Temporary learner insurance is a great insurance option for learners looking for some extra practice between lessons. For 12 hours up to 28 days, temporary learner insurance gives you the insurance you need to drive a friend or family members car without having to adjust existing cover or commit to long term insurance.

Can you get provisional insurance for one month?

Yes, you can get provisional insurance for just one month if you need it. With 1 month learner insurance, you get insurance for the time you want, so you don’t pay for cover you don’t need.

Provisional insurance for a month from Tempcover is a flexible insurance option that’s designed to work around your schedule and when you want to practice. This means you can save money while learning to drive.

When might I need learner insurance for one month?

We all learn to drive at different speeds, but monthly learner driver insurance can help you speed up the process by helping you get that crucial extra practice between instructor lessons.

Here are just some of the occasion’s where learner drivers could find 1 month learner insurance useful:

  • Learning during the summer holidays – If you have a period of free time from college or university, take the opportunity to gain some experience on the road. With Learner insurance for a month, you’re covered for the whole period, so whenever you’re able to, you can practice with complete peace of mind that you’re covered.


  • Approaching your driving test – The last few weeks before a driving test are the most nerve-racking as you get ready for the big day. At this point, you’ve mastered most parts of driving, but it’s always worth taking that extra time to nail anything you’re struggling with. Whether it’s parking, your observation at junctions or checking your mirrors, take the opportunity to hone these skills ahead of your test with 1 month learner insurance.


  • Intensive driving courses – Many learners don’t have the time for weekly lessons with an instructor so opt for an intensive driving course instead. It’s incredibly important to check before signing up for these courses that they offer the right type of insurance. Driving without insurance, even as a learner can result in penalty points, fines and even stop you from getting your full licence. If you’re in any doubt choose temporary learners insurance for the duration of the course.

What is the cheapest way to insure a learner driver?

The cheapest way to insure a learner driver is to make sure you’re only paying for insurance when you’re actually driving. For many learner drivers, this is with temporary learner driver insurance.

Whether you just want a few days learner insurance or need Provisional insurance for a month, or even longer, you can find a policy to suit your needs.

Not only do you get the most cost-effective insurance option when you choose temporary insurance, but you also save money for the owner of the vehicle you’re practising in.

Because temporary insurance is a separate, standalone policy, if you’re learning in a parent or friends’ car, they won’t have to adjust their existing policy and should you have an accident, their No Claims Discount is unaffected.

If you are planning to take your time while learning to drive and own your own car, you might find that an annual policy is the best option. This will help you start building a No Claims Discount, but will be more expensive if you end up passing before the policy ends as you’ll have to adjust it to reflect that you’re now a qualified driver.

Of course, you can add yourself to the vehicle owners policy, but this will impact the price of their premium going-forward and will cause them to lose their No Claims Discount if you have an accident while learning.
