Got any questions?

How does the Free Accompanied Driver Cover work?

Once you have completed your first lesson with your driving instructor you can get insured on an existing Aviva policyholder’s car insurance. The policyholder must be a parent, guardian, spouse, partner, aunt, uncle or grandparent of the Driving School pupil. The policyholder with an Aviva Direct car insurance policy will need to contact us on 1890 33 55 77 to arrange this cover on their policy. If the policyholder has Aviva car insurance through a broker, they must contact their broker directly to activate the Free Accompanied Driver Cover using the pin number.

You can drive with the policyholder, a named driver on that Aviva car insurance policy and with your Aviva driving instructor or RSA approved driving examiner. The policyholder and named driver must hold a full EU licence for a continuous period of two years in respect of the vehicle category.

What if the policyholder is an Aviva Broker customer and is not insured with Aviva directly?

You can still buy driving lessons through us directly, but to avail of the Free Accompanied Driver Cover with Aviva, the policyholder will need to contact their broker directly.

I’ve bought the Aviva Driving School Level One (Educate) package and my first lesson is booked; am I immediately insured as a Free Accompanied Driver?

No. You need to complete your first lesson on Level One (Educate) with your Aviva driving instructor before the policyholder can insure you as a Free Accompanied Driver on their Aviva car policy. The policyholder will need to contact us directly on 1890 33 55 77 or their broker to request the cover to allow you to drive. Please note that you cannot drive until the policyholder has added you to their Aviva policy.

At the end of this lesson your Aviva Driving School instructor will give you a pin number which the car insurance policyholder must use to activate your Free Accompanied Driver Cover.

Important Note: The cover must be activated within the first 7 days after taking your first driving lesson.

What do I need to do with this pin number?

The policyholder with an Aviva Direct car insurance policy will need to contact us on 1890 33 55 77 with the pin number.

If the policyholder has Aviva car insurance through a broker, they must contact their broker directly to activate the Free Accompanied Driver Cover using the pin number.

When the policyholder has an Aviva Direct car insurance policy, we will then take the necessary details and add you to their insurance policy for free, for either 3 or 6 months from that day, depending on whether you are on the Level One (Educate) package (6 months) or the Level Two (Achieve) package (3 months).

The policyholder checked their insurance policy documents and I wasn’t named on the insurance documents, am I still covered by the Free Accompanied Driver Cover insurance?

Yes, you are covered by the stand alone letter we issue to the policyholder and this is your confirmation of cover with Aviva. If you have not received this letter within 3-5 working days, please contact us at Aviva Direct on 1890 33 55 77 or email us on direct@aviva.ie. If the policyholder has Aviva car insurance through an Aviva broker, they must contact their broker directly.

Important Note: This stand-alone letter confirming your insurance cover needs to be in the car, (that you are completing the Accompanied Driver Cover on) always when driving. In addition, you must be accompanied by the policyholder, who is the policyholder of the car, a named driver on that policy, an Aviva driving instructor or an RSA approved examiner, when driving.

My 6 months Free Accompanied Driver Cover with Aviva has run out and I still have driving lessons to take. Can I extend the free insurance?

No extension can be offered on the Free Accompanied Driving Cover. However, if the policyholder contacts Aviva or their broker they may be able to buy additional Aviva insurance cover.

Can I activate the Free Accompanied Driver cover on more than one Aviva car insurance policy?

Yes, if the second policyholder is one of the following individuals, a parent, guardian, spouse, partner, aunt, uncle or grandparent of the Driving School pupil. However, the period of cover for the Free Accompanied Driver will not extend past the 3 or 6-month time frame, (depending on which package you bought), which started from the date you were first added to a policy using the Free Accompanied Driver cover.

I’ve already started my driving lessons and activated the Free Accompanied Driver cover but I won’t be able to take my next driving lessons for a couple of months. Can I extend/split the Free Accompanied Driver Cover?

The Free Accompanied Driver Cover cannot be extended or divided throughout the year. The 3 and 6-month Free Accompanied Driver Cover (depending on which package you bought), must be consecutive.

Is the Free Accompanied Driver Cover consecutive between packages?

No, the policyholder will need to activate or reactivate cover with each package you buy.

Important Note: In order to buy Level Two (Achieve) Package you must have completed all 12 Essential Driver Training (EDT) requirements.

If you have not completed your EDT (Essential Driving Training) requirements with Aviva Driving School, you can still purchase the Level Two (Achieve) package to get you test ready, however you will not be able to avail of the Free Accompanied Driver cover offer with Aviva
