Getting young drivers on the road and not out of pocket

You're no longer a learner driver – the L Plates have gone and you've got a Full UK licence to prove it. But the cheaper temporary insurance will have bitten the dust too and now you need a new option.

Avoid high costs

For young drivers, the cost of car insurance is often too much to even consider – under 25s face some of the highest premiums in the country.

Why? Because young drivers are statistically a "higher risk" which means you're more likely to make a claim than say an older driver with years of driving experience.

We've got your back

But, at Admiral we know you can't tar all young drivers with the same brush so we have a couple of options to help get you on the road without the eye-watering insurance price tag.

MultiCar Insurance

Our family-friendly MultiCar Insurance puts all the cars in your home - yours, mum's, dad's and your siblings' - on one policy.

This can work out cheaper than individual policies as each car added earns a MultiCar discount.

Be sure to get every driver's permission before you take out a MultiCar policy.

Cars can live at different addresses

If you’re living away at uni, or have your own place, you can still get MultiCar for all your immediate family cars.

Your No Claims Bonus is safe

Plus, every car earns a separate No Claim Discount. So if one person on the policy needs to make a claim, it won’t affect everyone else’s discount.

Black box insurance

For many young drivers, a Telematics insurance policy is often the best option when it comes to getting more affordable cover.

Earn LittleBox discounts

Our black box is called LittleBox and it measures how well you drive and when, alongside other risk factors, to calculate a driving score - giving you the opportunity to be treated as an individual.

How it works

It’s a small device that fits in the palm of your hand. Once it’s in place, you can continue to drive as normal and within a couple of weeks you’ll get feedback on your driving. The good news is safe drivers get a discount when it comes to renewal!

But bear in mind this works both ways, so bad drivers may find their insurance price increases and the very worst risk their policy being cancelled altogether.

We’ll repay your excess and your No Claims Bonus won’t be affected if you have an accident with an uninsured driver that isn’t your fault, as long as you have details about the other vehicle.
