New & Learner Drivers

Cheaper car insurance for young drivers

You’re a young driver, you've passed your test, and you can’t wait to buy your first car! But you need to get car insurance first - and how much is it going to cost?

At Top Marques Insurance we like to do things differently. There's no doubting the statistics that if you're aged between 17 and 24 you're in the highest risk bracket, but we believe that young drivers should be treated as individuals. And that means that careful drivers shouldn't be penalised for the dodgy driving of some of their contemporaries.

Our New Driver Insurance is a comprehensive, telematics insurance for young drivers learning to drive in their own car or once they have passed their test.

You can build up your own no claims bonus straight away- even better, there is no premium change once you pass our test.

The policy is free from restrictive curfews and negative night time driving penalties so young drivers can drive where and when they want.

We also give our lowest price from the outset so there is no mucking around when it comes to arranging the cover.

The latest telematics technology helps the drive develop safer driving skills, and lowering their premium by measuring their driving ABCs- Acceleration, Braking, Cornering and Speed.

Feedback is available online instantly on every journey through a web based portal which also features handy eLearning modules to help become even safer.

Here’s some other questions and answers to help you decide:


What is a No Claim Bonus?

It's when you get a reduction in your premium as a reward for having a claim-free record.

Because the policy provides comprehensive cover, am I insured to drive other vehicles?

No. Because we use the telematics device to monitor your driving, we'll only cover you for the car it's fitted in.

I would like to insure the car in my parent's name with me as a named driver, can I do this?

Afraid not. The policy needs the main driver to be aged between 17 and 24. So if you're added to the policy as a named driver but you're actually driving the car the majority of the time then this is what's called 'insurance fronting' which is a form of fraud.

Is there a time curfew?

No. Unlike some telematics offerings which offer black box insurance, you are covered to drive any time you like, day or night.

What is telematics?

Good question. It's actually a clever kind of information technology that deals with the transmission of computerised information over long distances.

Is there a mileage allowance on this policy?

No, the policy is based on the annual mileage declared by the policyholder.

What do I do if my car gets stolen?

Inform the police (obtaining a crime reference number) and your insurer at your first opportunity advising them whether your car is fitted with a GPS Device (i.e. black box) that may be able to locate the vehicle’s whereabouts. Please see our make a claim section for more information.

Will I be penalised if I drive badly?

If you drive unsafely you could end up with additional charges of £125 or even £250. Take a look at our Driver Caution and Additional Premium process for all the details.


Lorem ipsom dolor sit amet

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Contrary to popular belief

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage

Lorem ipsum

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
