Learner driver insurance
Practice makes perfect. If you need a little more time behind the wheel, you can get insurance with Cuvva for just 1 hour.
Our learner driver insurance is fully comprehensive, and the owner’s no-claims bonus isn’t affected.
Here’s the need-to-know bit.
We do have a few restrictions on who we can cover. Take a look before you download the app.
Temporary car and van insurance - you have to:
• Have a GB driving licence from the DVLA
• Be at least 19 - and if you’re younger than 21, you have to have held your licence for at least a year, with no at-fault (or joint-fault) claims on your insurance
• Be under 65
• Have a vehicle less than 20 years old
There are also restrictions on car insurance groups. Essentially, the more valuable the car, the longer you have to have been driving.
Learner driver insurance - you have to:
• Be at least 17, and under 55
• Have a provisional licence
• Be with a supervisor (they need to be older than 21, with at least 3 years’ driving experience)
Travel insurance - you have to be:
• Be aged 16-55, if you’re the main policyholder (if you’re not, you can still be added to someone else’s policy)
• Meet the medical requirements (you can get a full list in the app)
If you have any feedback or questions, we’d love to hear from you. Our customer support team is available all day, every day.

Ratings and ReviewsSee All
I have used Cuvva several times for temporary car insurance, once to use my Dad’s car to drive him back from spinal surgery, once to insure my nana’s new car and drive it back through the city for her as she is too nervous to drive it there herself, and once to help my friends mum and collect her new car for her. Every time it has been so easy and cheap to use, I’ve been able to insure myself for just one or two hours as required without having to call up normal insurers and add myself to policies or get new policies. It was soooooo much easier!!!
I have recommended the app to tonnes of people who need quick temporary car insurance and I will continue to use the app whenever I need it. I’ve never had to spend more that £15.
Thank you Cuvva!

Hi there, thanks for leaving us a review! And for going into so much detail. 😊 We love to know how people use Cuvva, and it helps others find out about Cuvva too. We're so pleased Cuvva could come in handy all those times, especially as you've used it for good deeds! 👍Thanks for your support and for being a Cuvva customer. 🎉
Change there prices willy nilly, priced/ amended themselves out the market
Used them a few times but after using them to get a car back and forth to a garage they then upped there prices telling my there brokers changed ( my own car that I have a policy with wasn’t even allowed to be insured via them), they never made this clear anytime leading up to the moment they changed , so legit one hour it was 20 pound the next I wasn’t, unfortunately I was able to pick the car up at this point and was stuck and unable to insure it due to change in there policy, I use my own insure provider now they are happy to insure for a day or 2 for under 30 pound which worked out cheaper than cuvva! And I’m 21 ! Very dangerous move to make without some sort of cooling off period, very disappointed won’t be using them ever again , there a few other apps like this Lenny ect that work the same and seem to have better prices , I don’t know if there owned by cuvva but I’ll look into it and let people know Not to us them.... oldest trick in the book , unite, divide and conquer very poor business model and won’t last long in today’s market. This is aimed at a higher age group and experience which in turn makes poor sense as people with these attributes are most likely able to be covered by there own provider for pennies

Hi David, this sounds like a really frustrating experience. Sorry you had to go through that. You're right - one of our underwriters has recently changed their pricing, which could explain the changes. While the new pricing has made Cuvva cheaper for many users, sadly, some will have higher prices, or may not be able to insure the same vehicles anymore. Sadly it sounds like you fall into this category. At the moment we are gathering feedback to give back to the underwriter about the changes, and will certainly include this feedback. We're pleased you managed to figure it out in the end. But we're really sorry for any inconvenience. If you'd like to discuss this further or raise a complaint with us, you can do so by messaging us in the app or at email@example.com.
When recently buying a car I couldn’t locate my insurance quote I had previously got. We needed to get the car home and a friend recommended using Cuvva to insure the car for as long as I needed till I could get insurance on it. I’d only been driving a year and didn’t think I’d get insured and was a bit sceptical as we had a long journey home and did not want to be stopped for driving with no insurance. However I was so wrong ! It was so quick and easy and you received your insurance documents immediately all to you needed was the car and your driving license and was such good value for money! Not expensive at all! Would highly recommend and will defo be using again in a time of need.
