Can I drive my parents’ car without insurance?

No. You can only drive your parents’ car if you have either your own insurance policy or you are a named driver on their policy.

The law requires you to have at least third party cover, even if you’re driving with your parents’ permission.

If your parents knowingly allow you to drive their car without insurance, not only could you find yourself charged with an offence which may lead to a conviction, your parents could also be in trouble.

Whether you get your own policy or become a named driver on your parents’ very much depends on your circumstances - our article about naming young drivers on their parents’ policy provides useful information about this.
