A lot of driving instructors have been finding that there driving school insurance premiums have gone up considerably even though they have had no claims or other changes to their insurance. There certainly seems to be quite a shake up happening in the driving school car insurance sector at the moment..
In order to help driving instructors to shop around, below are some links to different driving instructor insurance providers.
But first some ideas of how to lower the cost of your driving instructor car insurance:
Sometimes adding a second named driver can actually DECREASE your premium. If your husband/wife/partner has a good driving record it may be worth putting them on as a named driver (not for driving instruction purposes though!)
Some insurance companies ask you grade. It may be that a better grade might make some difference although it is probably just to confirm that you are still a qualified driving instructor.
Can you park your car off road? There will be a slight premium increase for people who park on the public road at night, so if you have a driveway or better still a garage then you should use it.
Do you have a second job? This may either increase or decrease your premium. The job title you give can make a difference – for instance bar workers may be seen as a higher risk occupation than restaurant staff.
Check out the insurance group of your car before you buy it. Sometimes a brand new low group car attracts a lower premium than a second hand vehicle, they represent a lower purchase cost but higher insurance group cars.
It is definitely worth shopping around for driving instructor insurance. It is tempting to go on Facebook and just ask for recommendations for the lowest price driving instructor insurance but unfortunately a company that quotes low for one instructor in their circumstances, may be more expensive for a different instructor with different circumstances.
