Car insurance for new drivers

You’ve passed your test. Get in! Now it’s time to get on the road and be rewarded for your safe driving.

Black box liberates new drivers

Months of lessons, practice and test revision has finally paid off and the road is yours. Well…nearly.

Being a completely new driver can mean things can get pretty expensive, because the less experience drivers have on the road the more likely they are to crash. This risk is why insurance for new drivers is often so expensive to begin with, but it doesn’t have to be that way

How new drivers can SAVE money on insurance

Choose your first car wisely

Getting your first car is up there with one of the most exciting times in your life. So, don’t let that also become the biggest mistake of your life. You’ve recently passed so you’re going to want a car you’re going to feel confident driving – but can actually afford to run.

As tempting as it is to want a brand new, flash set of wheels for your first year on the road, aim to go for an older car with a smaller engine – under 1.5 is best. It’ll help you avoid the high insurance premiums and expensive claims if you do have a ding later on.

Check out black box insurance

Black box insurance gives you more control over the price of your insurance. It means your insurer can base you on your actual driving, not just from a bunch of generic statistics from drivers your age.

ingenie gives you the chance to be treated as an individual based on how you actually drive. You’ll get a competitive price upfront and have the chance to earn discounts at renewal for driving well.

Whoever said new drivers aren’t good drivers? Not ingenie.
