Mummy says… It was lovely to see Lea home last weekend – the first time since she began Uni. We talked a lot about her future, and one thing we discussed was continuing learning to drive. Lea has had a couple of lessons with her dad, but it has always been really difficult to find places to practice other than car parks…..
The trouble is getting short term insurance for her to drive a car whilst learning – or as new driver until she gets her own car.
Now there is a brilliant answer from Veygo, a new brand from Admiral which offers short-term insurance solutions for learner drivers and new drivers without cars.
We were invited by Veygo and Mumsnet to look into this brilliant insurance.
Learner drivers benefit from getting as much valuable experience driving on the road as possible to get ready to take (and pass!) their driving test. The DSA recommends 22 hours of private driving practice in addition to lessons with a professional driving instructor and this insurance cover makes it super easy for Lea, and learners like her, to be able to drive a car on the road whilst having the piece of mind knowing she is fully insured.
‘Veygo offers flexible cover for learner drivers in a friend or family member’s car, from two hours up to 90 days. The fully comprehensive insurance from Veygo works in addition to the owner’s policy already in place on the car. This means that if the learner does need to make a claim, the owner’s policy is not affected and the car is covered up to the current market value. It protects the provisional licence holder while also helping to preserve the car owner’s No Claims Bonus which would remain intact if they learner driver claimed.’
Sounds pretty good doesn’t it? It sure beats driving around car parks and will give Lea the chance to rack up some proper experience driving on the road, without the expense of only having driving lessons with a driving instructor.
We gave the Veygo website a go and it is so easy to arrange the insurance cover. You just need a few details including the drivers provisional licence number to get an instant quote. Quote was around £20 for 5 days – I think that is brilliant value – and my insurance is protected too.
