The traditional way to insure a learner

The traditional method to get insured as a learner – is probably just to hand the reigns over to your parents. They would most likely ring up their current insurer to see if you can get added to their policy.

Sometimes, adding a learner onto an annual policy can equal high costs, with added admin fees and a potential rise in premium, you might be discouraged from the whole thing entirely! Especially if your friend or family member is already on the fence about it!
