Re: Duals

Did they give any reason for not allowing this?    Most insurance companies will insure you to accompany a learner driver, so with dual controls it would be safer!
  Try other insurance companies.

Re: Duals

Duals make the car a commercial vehicle a modifcation not listed so will not insure the car if fitted.

Re: Duals

dear becca, some large companies ie arnold clark have dual controled cars for hire at hourly rates.These can be used by any member of the public.It is generally aimed at parents teaching their children. :twisted:

Re: Duals

Hi becca,

I had the same problem, i purchsed a new corsa back in June and i happened to mention that i was training to become a driving instructor (hence downgrading from a Mondeo) and the sales chap suggested they fit a set of duals which they had removed from another corsa when another driving instructor retired and changed his car.

This proved a problem with insurance i contacted my then current insurance company and they said no way. I tried numerous others and had the same responce. Eventually i tried ELEPHANT.CO.UK  if you do it online you can add modifcations to the policy and one of the modifications is dual controls, they wont insure you on any driver but they will allow you to add upto 5 named drivers onto the policy. I fould them quite reasonable.

Maybe worth a try.

Re: Duals

Becca,

As you are training to become an instructor maybe it would be worth talking to one of the specialist Driving Instructor Insurers that we all use.

Try Mastercover, Barry Grainger insurance, MCB insurance or similar companies, I'm sure they would have no problem finding a policy for you.

Good luck with the training.

Regards,

Re: Duals

hello everybody.

along the same lines of insurance.

i've got my private car insurance thru' esure at the minute. when i took the policy out (in february), i was in the construction industry, insured the car fully comp & was covered by my policy to drive any other car 3rd party. just took out my house insurance, again with esure. but i packed my job in a few months ago & so when was asked for my occupation for the house policy, i said i was unemployed. they asked a few more questions and i let slip i was training to be an adi. with having my car ploicy with them they said they would issue a new ins. certificate for the car, to reflect a change in occupation, but have withdrawn the 'drive any other car', bit on my policy. when i questioned them about this they said it was because i was classed as be employed with a driving school (who are training me). i explained to them that i was technically unemployed at the minute but this made no difference. (i am training for part 3 at the minute & hope to be on a pink soon). does anybody know why they have withdrawn this part of my car insurance?

thanks,

steveo.
