Learning to drive is an experience that everyone remembers. It is a challenging time, but there is no feeling in the world quite like when you pass your test. You feel an immense sense of independence as well as personal satisfaction, but before this can happen you will need regular practice.
This is the most important element of learning to drive, as you need to spend time behind the wheel practising everything that you learn in your lessons. You do not get the opportunity to do this much during the lessons. That is because they are expensive and you need to spend the time learning the manoeuvres and how to be a safe and competent driver. In order for you to be able to get the practice that you need to master different manoeuvres you will need learner driver insurance. This will enable you to spend more time behind the wheel and for less money.
Generally you will find that there are two different options when it comes to learner driver insurance; annual learner driver insurance and temporary learner driver insurance. Any owner of their own diesel vehicle that is registered in their own name should take out annual learner driver insurance. In many cases you will even be able to begin earning your no claims bonus whilst learning.
Alternatively, you can opt for temporary learner driver insurance which will see you obtain cover for a certain period of time. This will depend on the insurance company, but generally it will be anywhere between 1 week and 140 days. Continue reading “Learning to Drive: Insurance Cover to Keep You Practising”
