Leaving your car at home? You could be saving money.
Around half of all students in the UK have a driving license, but only around a third of them take their car with them when it comes you moving to college or university. What many people don’t realise is that, in addition to saving money on fuel, parking, you should also see a benefit in reduced insurance costs.
What insurance do I need if I’m leaving my car at home?
Even if your car is going to sit on the drive or in the garage for a month or two, you’re still legally obliged to insure it. The only way round that is to declare it off-road through a SORN (Statutory Off-Road Notification). Assuming you’re not planning to do that, you could save money on your insurance because you’ll naturally be doing very low mileage.
Here at MyFirstUK, we specialise in insurance for young, new and learner drivers. We work with a range of leading insurers and can access policies specifically designed to meet the requirements of a new or young driver. Simply give us some basic details and we’ll do the rest. We’ll research policy options for you, get comparative quotes so that you can compare, and even advise you on which policy we think best fits your needs.
