RED Learner Driver Insurance

Learner driver insurance is temporary car insurance for learner drivers, irrespective of whether you are learning with RED, which allows you to get some practice sessions in your own car, or in a friend’s or relative’s car. If you’re a provisional licence holder and you’re 50 or under the cover would allow you to drive in the short term whilst being properly supervised

The DVSA states that, on average, it takes 45 hours of professional instruction and 22 hours of private practice to learn to drive. RED’s Learner insurance is a great way to gain those extra recommended hours.
