Driving Instructor Insurance

Driving Instructor Insurance

Our award-winning Driving Instructor Insurance, is in our opinion, the best available on the market. You'll get unrivalled customer service, and we work in conjunction with a selected panel of insurers, to provide you with a competitive quotation for your Driving Instructor Insurance. Which includes benefits such as 24 / 7 accident management and a dual controlled courtesy car.

Why do I need a specialist driving instructor insurance policy?

Regardless of whether you own or lease the driving schools car, legally it is your responsibility to arrange adequate insurance that covers both you and your dual control car for driving instruction, also for driving tests extended to include "show me, tell me" with £2 million public liability. Standard car insurance will not be appropriate and a dedicated driving instructor insurance policy is required. We can also arrange Breakdown Cover, Replacement vehicle cover and GAP insurance, which means that should the unfortunate happen, you are adequately covered.

( full terms and conditions are detailed in your policy documentation)

Events you're covered for:

Here's a summary of what you get with your ADI car insurance policy. But do take the time to look through the details in the policy document to make sure this cover is right for you.

Damage to your car
If your car is damaged in an accident, fire or attempted theft, or if it’s stolen we’ll get you back on the road. We’ll repair your car, or if that’s not possible we’ll pay you the value of the car at the time it was damaged. If you're the first owner of your car and it's less than a year old, and it's damage for more than 50% of the value, or stolen and not recovered - we'll replace the car for a new one of the same make and model.

Windscreen Cover
You don't need to worry about losing your no claims discount if you damage your windscreen. We'll get our approved repairer to repair or replace it. And if you damage your side and rear windows, or sunroof, they'll fix those too. We'll even pay to fix the bodywork if it's damaged by broken glass.

Dual Controlled Courtesy Car
If your car is damaged in an accident or by fire or vandalism and we are repairing your car, we'll give you a small hatchback courtesy car. You can use this car while our approved repairer fixes yours. And you'll have your usual level of cover when you drive it. If one of our approved garages says your car can't be fixed, you can keep the courtesy car for four days after the date you find out. Unfortunately, this part of your insurance does not cover you if your car is stolen.

Uninsured Driver Protection
If you have an accident with an uninsured driver, we'll make sure you don't lose your no claims discount – as long as the accident wasn’t your fault. You'll just need to give us the details of the driver and their car and we’ll do the rest. We’ll look into the details of the accident. While we do this we may reduce your no claims discount. But don’t worry, if you weren't at fault, we'll return your no claims discount back to its original level.

"I m a returning customer and what a wonderful experience. Emma is new to her role but she was very helpful and polite throughout. She got the quote done very quickly and managed to beat all my other quotations. I therefore didn't have to waste any more time. Further she offered me three instalments at 0% which is helpful in this current economic climate. The paperwork was sent straight away. Highly recommended."
