The open road gives many young drivers the type of freedom they have never experienced before. Being able to get in a car and drive wherever you want, whenever you want without having to rely on parents or relatives is an important milestone when growing up.
Young drivers often find themselves in ever-changing situations that an annual policy can’t keep up with. Whatever the adventure, the best way to enjoy yourself is to know you’re fully protected if something goes wrong.
Unfortunately, because of the risk factor that’s often associated with young drivers – especially those drivers who have just passed their driving test – insurance can be extremely difficult to find. Particularly so if you’re under 21.
As a new driver, knowing your insurance is comprehensive means you can enjoy the open road with complete peace of mind, wherever it may take you!
Our temporary insurance policies come with fully comprehensive insurance as standard, so if anything does go wrong not only is the other person covered, so are you. From 1 hour to 28 days, short term car insurance can be used as and when you need it, so you’re not paying for insurance if you don’t need it.

It’s also important to note that because of new Continuous Insurance Enforcement (CIE) rules, any vehicle you’re using must always be covered by an insurance policy. It is illegal to keep a vehicle that is not either insured or registered with the DVLA as off the road.
Whether you need to drive a car occasionally for work or when you come home from university, young driver temporary car insurance will be the most affordable option.
You may be borrowing it for a day or sharing the driving on a road trip. Whatever the circumstances, if you’re driving someone else’s car, you need to be insured to do so.
Temporary young driver insurance is often the cheapest and easiest way to drive someone else’s car with comprehensive cover. Most drivers under 25 will struggle to find an annual policy that includes a ‘Driving Other Cars’ extension, and even if they do, it won’t cover any damage to the car you are driving.
Having young driver temporary car insurance is perfect for newly qualified people in their teens and early twenties. You don’t have to worry about being added to your friend’s policy or affecting their No Claims Discount, because it acts as a separate policy created only for the specified period.
No driver wants the experience of picking up a new car to be ruined by being stopped because they’re not fully insured. If you’re buying a new vehicle, you need to make sure that it’s covered, and that you’re covered if you’re driving someone else’s car to pick it up.
If not properly insured in either situation, you could end up with a serious fine.
Young driver temporary car insurance cover is the best way to get complete protection while you wait to purchase an annual policy. One or two day policies give you comprehensive cover, which means you can pick up your new car and drive it away without having to worry, in essence acting as your drive away insurance.
