Am I covered to drive other cars?

Whether or not you are covered to drive any other cars (other than the car for which you hold an insurance policy) will depend on the terms and conditions of the policies held by you and the other vehicle's owner.

Some comprehensive car insurance policies will provide either comprehensive or third party cover for you to drive other vehicles, but some will not – you should check with your insurer to see if you’re covered.

If you do have appropriate cover to drive other vehicles under your comprehensive insurance policy, you should take particular care to check and ensure that you comply with the specific policy terms and conditions.  For example, some insurers will only cover drivers of a certain age for driving other vehicles, and some insurers may limit the types of vehicles that are covered.
