Young Driver Van Insurance

Young drivers pay more for insurance; it’s a fact of motor insurance and is the same for all types of vehicles, vans included.

That’s because those aged 17-24 are statistically more likely to be involved in collisions and accidents, which results in expensive claims and expensive premiums.

Is there specialist van insurance for young drivers?

Unfortunately there are no specialist van insurance policies for young drivers and that means you’ll have to get used to the idea that you have to pay more.
