Commercial Vehicle Insurance Defaqto 5 Star Rating
It can be incredibly difficult to find good value motor insurance for young people – especially if you’re a van driver.
Statistically speaking, young drivers – specifically those under 21 years of age - are more likely to be involved in an accident than older drivers who have more experience on the road.
Many young drivers have also not had the chance to build up their own no claim discount, which makes it easy to see why van insurance for younger drivers is usually very expensive.
Even adding a young driver onto an existing policy can add a significant amount to an experienced driver’s insurance premium.
If you’re a young driver aged under 21 installing a telematics device in the van that you're driving could help you get the insurance that you need.
With our Black Box Telematics Insurance your safe driving could get you out on the road.
Black Box Telematics Insurance from Direct Line for Business works by analysing information about the way you drive your van, including the way you break, accelerate and negotiate corners.
This information is recorded by a small telematics device – the ‘black box’ – which is fitted into your van. You can then get feedback on your driving at any time via our Black Box web portal.
Our Black Box telematics device is easy to install, with no tools required. Simply fit the black box into your van's On-board diagnostics (OBD) port and start driving. You’ll then be able to get feedback on what you’re doing – or not doing – behind the wheel. (Please note, if your vehicle was manufactured before 1996, it is not guaranteed to have an OBD port. So please make sure to check your vehicle before calling us for a quote.)
Check in regularly to find out how you’re driving, and where you could alter your driving style.
When you’re ready for a quote, give us a call on 0345 301 2882. Please note that we are currently only able to offer our Black Box Telematics Insurance for new business over the phone.
