anyone out there with an EU licence who has not been in the UK 5 years? I am trying to get my partner as an additional driver on my policy. I am on as main driver & my mom is also on. So my partner would be the 3rd drier. they have had their EU licence for 12 years but have "only" been resident in the uk for 4 years. My insurer (RAC) refused to add them claiming it's due to EU licence.
seems ridiculous. my partner currently has their own car but its about to fail its mot so we figured i'll just add to mines & we will car share.How is it possible that they are able to get their own insurance (not RAC) as a main & only driver on the policy yet my insurer refuses to add them?
i think their insurance was about £750. My insurance is £450. RAC told me to would have to change underwriter and my premium would go from £450 to £950 to add my partner.
again this seems ridiculous that it would be more expensive to have 3 drivers on a policy than for them to have their own as the main driver.
Just FYI my partner is 30 years old almost 31 so not exactly a young driver either.
