Learner drivers could save with Provisional Marmalade

Learner drivers could be in line for big savings as the people behind award-winning young driver specialist Young Marmalade have launched Provisional Marmalade to help support learner drivers.

Provisional Marmalade is car insurance which covers learner drivers practising in the cars of their friends and family, whilst being supervised.

Should any claims be necessary they will not compromise a no-claims bonus of adversely affect the insurance status of the car’s owner.

Over a million provisional driving licences were granted last year, and the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) has stated that alongside professional tuition 22 hours or more of private practice would be optimal for learner drivers.

Premiums for cars can skyrocket from a few hundred pounds to a few thousand if a learner driver (particularly those under 21) are involved, raising the dilemma of paying large sums or preventing a child or friend from having the benefit of private practice.

Provisional Marmalade can be arranged monthly, and offers fully comprehensive protection from £3 a day.

Worryingly, car insurance for young motorists with licences is also an area for concern, with the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) estimate a quarter of a million are driving without the necessary insurance.

Surprisingly 10% of young drivers appear not to be aware that car insurance is a legal necessity, particularly concerning as young drivers are four times more likely to be in an accident than more seasoned motorists.
