Test drive car insurance is a standalone, short-term car insurance policy. It's perfect if you're buying a new second-hand car and what to take it for a spin first. And with Cuvva, the car doesn't need an underlying policy. That means you're covered even if the owner doesn't have insurance.
To use Cuvva, you have to be over 19 and under 65. And if you're under 21, you need to have held your licence for at least a year.
Sometimes, different vehicles will have different age restrictions. To double-check, try getting a quote in the app.
We figure out your excess using lots of different bits of information, like:
-Your age. Younger drivers tend to have a higher excess than older, more experienced drivers.
- The vehicle you're driving. Faster, more expensive cars tend to come with a higher excess.
- Your location when you start the policy. If you're based in an area where there are lots of incidents, your excess will go up a little
We don't offer voluntary excess, and you can't adjust the compulsory excess. But it's always shown clearly in the app before you buy a policy.
