Classic Car Insurance for Younger Drivers

Footman James have launched an innovative new scheme which means that younger drivers, who had previously struggled to obtain insurance for their classic cars are now able to do so, subject to a range of qualifying criteria. The scheme went live on 25th March 2013.

The commencement of the new policy follows in the footsteps of the government's new green paper recently launched. The green paper, set to improve road safety for young drivers, is something motorists everywhere will welcome and is an initiative that the government hopes will not only save lives but also further reduce insurance premiums.
The younger driver classic car insurance scheme for 17 - 23 year olds contains the following criteria:
  • Owner must be a member of one of the pre-selected clubs.
  • Car must have been manufactured in or before 1985.
  • Owner must have use of or own a second vehicle for everyday use.
  • Owner must limit their mileage to 3000 to 5000 miles per year.
  • Owner must have a maximum of one non-fault claim or minor conviction.
  • Car must be parked off the road or garaged.
Young drivers who meet the above criteria can be eligible for further discounts if they score enough points in the brand new points system devised by Footman James and insurance partner KGM. The system will award points to young drivers who can demonstrate a commiment to the movement through the following:
  • Length of club membership.
  • Involvement in club activities and events.
  • Family history of owning classics / club membership.
  • How they heard about the product.
