Can you get cheaper insurance as a new driver?

If you answer yes to all these questions you might...

Is your car in a low insurance group car?

Each car has an insurance group number from one to 50. Driving a car in a low insurance group is the easiest way to reduce your premiums.

Can you add an experienced driver?

Adding a second, low-risk driver can lower the costs of your car insurance. But another motorist cannot pretend to be the main driver – this is illegal and known as ‘fronting’.

Can you take an advanced driving course?

Some insurers will cut the cost of car insurance if you take an advanced driving course, such as the government-backed Pass Plus scheme or IAM RoadSmart.

Can you afford to pay annually?

Paying for your insurance in one go each year will be cheaper than paying in monthly instalments when interest is added.

Advanced driving and intensive driving courses

What is an advanced driving course? Advanced driving courses help people improve their road safety. Drivers who take an advanced driving course are taught to be more observant and better at anticipating changes. Some car insurers offer people who have taken an advanced driving course cheaper car insurance quotes. Advanced driving programmes are crash courses in not crashing. They involve learning how to drive defensively with greater awareness of the road and other road users.
