What is a named driver experience?

Car or van

This is a discount we offer if you haven't had a policy in your own name before, but have been a named driver on someone else's policy without any claims. It works in the same way as a no claims bonus, so you get a discount for every year you have been a named driver, up to a limit of five years.

To get the discount you must have been named on a private car or company car policy (for van insurance you must have been named on a commercial van or truck policy). If you qualify for the discount, you'll need to send us proof (a letter from the previous insurance company) once you start your policy.

We accept named driving experience earned in the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Great Britain, EU, America, Canada, Australia, or New Zealand. The end date of the most recent named driving period must be within the last two years and each year must be a full 12 months. We also cannot accept a Certificate of Insurance, proposal form or Schedule of Insurance as proof of your named driving experience.
