    This is worrying...

    Question

    "Can I drive someone else's van on my fully comprehensive insurance?
    I'm insured fully comprehensive. My father-in-law has a van with business insurance. Can I borrow the van or even drive the van under my insurance? My insurance states that I can drive other vehicles. Does business insurance only allow named drivers to use the vehicle"

    Answer

    "Yes, you can drive the van on your insurance, but be aware that this only covers you for third party cover and not for damage you may cause to the van. Your father-in-law could also put you on his policy to be insured fully comp as a named driver."

    He's a clever bloke that John. Knowing what a persons policy says without even reading it.

    I'm impressed.

    The Road Traffic Act 1934 requires you to inform your Insurer of any incident that may lead to a claim. Also the Consumer Insurance Act makes it law that Insurers can only ask questions relevant to the risk they are covering.

    A learne driver having a non fault accident is not relevant to the risk the Insurer is covering.
