Temporary Car Insurance for Provisional License

If you are in possession of a provisional license and are learning to drive, you may be forgiven for forgetting about insurance. It is very possible to get temporary car insurance for a provisional license holder and the car they are learning in.


It should be mentioned at the start that learner drivers are not required by law to have insurance themselves, although they are not allowed to operate a car by themselves. Taking out a temporary policy will mean that they are not liable for damages payments in the event of an accident.


Taking out one of these car insurance policies will mean you are protected against the cost of any nasty surprises.  It is always advisable to take the time that is needed to compare several car insurance policies from different companies.

The main benefit of a temporary policy is that the learner driver can be insured with a short term policy in a vehicle that is already covered by a standard policy. The temporary policy will not affect the standard policy in any way; the original insurer is in no way liable for accidents that result from the actions of the learner.


There are now many insurance providers who can provide temporary car insurance quotes for provisional license holders, so it has never been easier to get yourself a good deal.
