How do I add/remove an additional driver?

You can add or remove a driver 24 hours a day via Your Insurance Account. Please see our existing FAQ 'How do I add an additional driver to my policy?'

You can have up to four additional drivers on your policy. These drivers must be added permanently and you will not be charged an admin fee for completing a change online, but you may have to pay an additional premium for the cover. If you call to make a change to your policy you may have to pay an administration fee, as well as any increased premium if applicable.

If you are adding a driver to your policy you will need to know the driver's details, including claims and convictions history, before we can provide you with a quote. You will also need to know the following about the additional driver:


  • Have they ever had a policy cancelled or have any criminal convictions
  • How long they have held a licence
  • Employment information
  • Details of any accidents, claims or losses including windscreen claims in the last 5 years
  • Details of any motoring convictions, fixed penalty offences or driving bans in the last 5 years
  • Their date of birth and if applicable, when they became a resident in the UK.


If you would like to add a driver to your policy temporarily or if your policy is due for renewal, please call our Customer Service team on 0345 673 0000* and have your policy number ready. Please note an administration fee may apply.

 Good day, 


 Just asking what details do i need about the additional driver that i would like to add. 

 So that before i call your number, i have prepared that necessary details. 




Hi Microshoxx,


We would normally ask for their name, date of birth, occupation, how long they've held their licence and relationship to you.


We would also ask for any claim, convictions, motoring conviction history and if they've had any previous insurance cancelled/void. 


You can call our Service Team 0345 673 0000 to do this.


Hope this helps.

Hi, just wondering, if I'm the main driver on my car and I added a second driver. If anything was to happen when I was driving such as a crash (hopefully not), would this affect the second drivers insurance on their own car in any way? Or will it purely just affect my own because they wasn't the one driving it? Many thanks, Nicole.

Thanks for your message and welcome to Your Community Nicoleclayton93.


If you unfortunately had an accident whilst driving, this wouldn't affect the second driver's insurance. The reason being, as you've correctly explained is because it would have been yourself driving and you would claim via your insurance policy.


I hope this helps.
