Just found out that direct line are now offering drivers that are named on a policy a no claims bonus, provided they havent made any claims.


I've been on my dads policy for 2.5 years now, so that means come August I'll have 3 years no claims. I'm well glad I done that now, people who stumped up the extra cash to go solo won't be too chuffed I guess.



"Direct Line is the first major insurance company in the UK that recognises named drivers’ No Claims history

If you have named drivers on your Direct Line car insurance policy, you (and they) will be pleased to know that we have become the first major insurance company in the UK to offer Named Driver No Claims Discounts.

This means that when we provide your named drivers with a quote for Direct Line car insurance, we’ll recognise every year they haven’t made a claim on your policy.

Taking advantage of this deal couldn’t be easier. Your named drivers’ no claims histories are automatically stored on our system, so when they come to apply for their own policy they simply need to give us your details online or on the phone and we can identify them immediately, at which point your named driver will be able to receive a No Claims Discount that could be as much as 65% of their premium "
