If you’re borrowing the car from another driver, then it must be insured annually and remain insured for the period of the learner driver policy. If you’re insuring your own car, that is owned and registered in your name, there doesn’t need to be any other insurance on the car.
We guarantee to update the Motor Insurance Database (MID) every 7 days and in some cases more often but we always recommend always having a copy of your Insurance Certificate with you during the period of cover. You can drive the vehicle legally between the dates and times shown on the insurance certificate issued to you when the insurance was completed.

If there are days left on your policy, you can cancel the policy and you’ll get a refund for the full days you haven’t used. To cancel, send us an email and don’t forget to include your policy number.

Learner drivers can take driving lessons on motorways in England, Scotland and Wales. However, the learner driver must be driving a car fitted with dual controls and be accompanied by an approved driving instructor. You can find full guidance about the laws of learner motorway driving on the Government website.
