Provisional drivers and supervisors

The supervisor of a learner driver doesn’t need to have insurance. As long as the supervisor:

  • Is over 25 years of age
  • Is qualified to drive the type of vehicle you’re learning in; and
  • Has held their licence for at least 5 years

Then they’re fine to supervise. The supervisor doesn’t need to be covered unless they want to drive the vehicle.  Gov.uk has some more information about learning to drive.

(Bear in mind that you can only buy learner driver policies between 9am and 8pm.)

Once you pass your driving test and get a full licence, our requirements change. It can take the DVLA a couple of weeks to update the information from their end. So it’s best to wait until the new licence comes through before buying another policy.

The easiest way to check if you can buy Cuvva is to try to get a quote. You can do that in the app. If you can get a quote, you can go ahead a buy a policy.
