Insurance FAQs

Can I add someone to an existing car insurance policy?

Yes you can, as long as the car is insured by LV=. In many instances you may decide that adding a friend or relative permanently onto your policy is the best option. However, temporarily adding a driver or vehicle to your LV= car insurance policy may be a preferred option for the temporary use of your vehicle or for adding a driver onto your policy short term.

If you want to add another driver to your existing policy, you can call us on 0800 032 9395.

To add a new driver, we need to know their:

  • Full name
  • Date of birth
  • Main occupation
  • Driving licence number or
  • Licence type (Full, Provisional), the year they got it and whether it's a UK, EU or another type of licence
  • Motoring convictions in the last 5 years - conviction month and year, offence code, disqualification period
  • Accidents or claims in the last 5 years - month and year of claim, claim type i.e. fault, partial fault, non-fault etc

It is important to remember that we reserve the right to cancel your policy should too many alterations be made throughout the life of your policy.

You need to be clear with your insurer about who drives the car the most. You cannot state that someone else is the main driver if you’re driving the car more than them, as this is called ‘fronting’. Whoever is driving the car the most is the ‘main driver’, with any other drivers being ‘named drivers.’ If you’re not honest about this, it’s considered fraud. Want to know more? LV= explains it all
