Learner and new drivers are considered a high risk by insurers because of their inexperience and the statistics that show they are more likely than other groups to make a claim. Whatever the standard of their driving, the new motorist will not have had chance to prove their ability by building up a no claims bonus.
Young and new women drivers could traditionally expect lower premiums than their male counterparts because statistics show they are safer on the roads, but a European Court of Justice directive now means it is against the law to set insurance prices according to gender.
All insurers will have different takes on risk and pricing, though, so shopping around with the help of Gocompare.com could save you serious money and help you to choose the right policy for your needs. Learner drivers just need to click the 'UK provisional' option when asked to select licence type. A telematics insurance policy is another possible solution for new and learner drivers seeking affordable cover, and we give you the option of comparing telematics quotes against more traditional policy options.
