Just passed your driving test? Congratulations!
Like many other young drivers, you’re probably now looking for the cheapest car insurance you can find. So, keep in mind the impact breaking the rules can have on your car insurance premium, your safety and your ability to drive.
Penalty points for new drivers
Breaking the rules of the road can lead to penalty points being put on your license. If you receive six or more penalty points within the first two years of passing your test, your licence will be taken away and you’ll have to start again as a learner.
How many points you receive for an offence isn't set in stone and often falls within a range, details of which you can find over at Gov.uk.
How do penalty points affect a young driver's car insurance premiums?
Running up penalty points could affect the amount you pay for a young driver car insurance policy. If you want to keep your car insurance as cheap as possible, make sure that you keep a clean driving licence.
