What type of insurance do I need for a driving test?
You’ll need to have valid insurance for the car you’re taking your test in. Learner driver insurance gives you cover to practise in a friend’s or family member’s vehicle while you learn. It should also cover you for a driving test, but make sure you check the terms and conditions before you book.
Can I insure my car before I pass my test?
You don’t need to worry about getting insurance until you pass your test. Be aware that it’s illegal for someone to charge for driving lessons if they aren’t qualified or registered, or don’t have a trainee driving instructor licence.
Does my insurance cover me for a test drive?
Even if you’re only test driving a car, you still need to be insured. If you’re buying the car from a main dealer, then this usually won’t be a problem as they’ll have cover in place. If you’re buying from a private seller, you’ll have to make sure that your own insurance will cover you.
How long is a driving test?
The road test typically takes about 20 to 30 minutes. Even after you pass the test, there may be additional wait time at the DMV to process your paperwork, take your picture, and issue a license once you pass. Make sure to plan your day accordingly. On test day, you should arrive at least 15 minutes early.
Can you take a driving test with Veygo insurance?
If you’re lucky enough to have your own car before passing your test, you’re able to use it for the practical exam provided it meets the rules explained above. *Bear in mind that if you have Veygo learner driver insurance, you won’t be insured to drive home if you have passed your test.
Is it illegal to have 2 car insurance policies?
It’s not illegal to have two car insurance policies for the same vehicle. However, it is against the law to try to claim the full amount for the same incident from two different insurance companies [KF1] – so there’s usually no reason to double up on car insurance.
Can a learner driver drive alone?
As a learner, you cannot drive alone. You must be accompanied by a qualified driver, who is aged at least 21 and has held a full driving licence for at least three years.
What happens if a learner driver is caught driving alone?
Put simply, you’re breaking the law. It’s illegal to drive on a provisional licence without a qualified driver beside you. If you are caught, you’ll receive a fine and penalty points. That would mean no licence, and no car.
Is it OK to test drive a car without buying?
You can go to a dealership just to test drive a car without buying it. However, you need not inform the dealership that you would be visiting for a test drive. A dealership will not deny you a test drive, especially if you give the impression that you would buy the car.
