If you own your own vehicle, and it is registered in your name, and you are looking for cover whilst you learn to drive in the car, please amend the 'Reason for Cover' option above to 'Learner in Own Car'.
If you own your vehicle but it is not registered in your name, we are unable to offer you cover.
Is the car already insured by the owner?
For our policies covering a Learner in a Borrowed Car, it is a policy requirement that the owner of the car being borrowed has a valid annual insurance policy on the car in place during the whole cover period of this policy. If the car owner's main policy falls for renewal within the cover period of this learner policy, it must be renewed without any gaps in cover. It will invalidate this policy if the owner does not have a main insurance policy in place.
Please confirm if the owner of the vehicle you are borrowing has a valid annual policy in place for the full period of cover of this policy. We will require information about that policy before you can purchase this policy.
If the owner of the vehicle you are intending to borrow does not have a valid insurance policy on the vehicle, we cannot offer you cover.
