Generally, when learning to drive you need car insurance that provides protection while you have a provisional driving licence. Once you pass your test, you have to change policies.
However, with MyFirstUK you can get what we call hybrid insurance. The policy will provide all the cover you need when you are learning to drive in your own vehicle and when you have passed your test. The hybrid policy continues on which means you do not have to mess around obtaining a different policy.
It also means the quote you are given for annual insurance is what you pay. If you were to pass your test after six months of lessons, the insurance continues, you don’t have to pay out for a different policy.
When learning to drive you will have a course of professional driving lessons. However, driving lessons don’t come cheap by any means, so you might want to get in some extra practice and more time on the road with a friend or relative. This is an excellent way of gaining more experience, without cost.
Another benefit of taking out hybrid learner insurance is you can build up the no claims bonus, to reach your no claims discount, as soon as possible.
