What insurance do driving instructors need?

The insurance you need as a driving instructor depends on the individual details of your business, but these are some of the business insurance covers that you may find useful.

Public liability insurance for driving instructors

Public liability insurance is likely to be at the centre of your driving instructor business insurance policy, as it can cover you if someone sues you for injury or damage. For example if a student was injured while getting out of your car and they made a compensation claim against your business, your public liability insurance could pay the legal fees and compensation costs.

Professional indemnity insurance for driving instructors

You may also decide you need professional indemnity insurance, as this covers you if a client sues you for negligence or for making a mistake in your work. For example if you taught a student the wrong things and they failed their driving test as a result, they could make a compensation claim against you and your professional indemnity insurance could step in.

Other business insurance for driving instructors

There are plenty of other business insurance covers that could also be useful for your business, including personal accident insurance and business equipment insurance. If you run a driving school and you have employees, employers’ liability insurance is likely to be a legal requirement.

It is a very good and easy to use service. I've been a customer for several years and the renewal system is very straight forward. I've always found the quotes competitive too. I'd definitely recommend Simply Business.
