Young Driver On the Road has partnered with iKube to offer novice driver insurance from £22 a week, along with affordable car leasing with Vauxhall.
With one in four parents (24 per cent) admitting the high cost of car insurance is putting them off encouraging their child to learn to drive at 17, the UK’s leading pre-17 driving school has pledged to end insane premiums for new drivers.
According to the poll of 2,500 parents by Young Driver, which has delivered more than 600,000 driving lessons to under 17s, one in seven (15 per cent) think the best idea to cut costs on car insurance is for the parent to put themselves as the main driver, and the child as an additional named driver – commonly known as fronting, which is illegal and would effectively leave their insurance invalid.
In a bid to make car insurance more affordable for responsible novice drivers, Young Driver On the Road, in partnership with iKube Insurance, has launched comprehensive cover for newly qualified drivers from £95 a month, or just £22 a week.
Available to teens who have had multiple lessons with Young Driver, the low price is based on research showing that youngsters who have had early driver education make better drivers.
The company will also offer young drivers combined vehicle leasing and insurance packages, with a brand new Vauxhall Corsa 5 Door Hatch 1.4 with sat nav and full insurance starting from just £270 a month.
