New car insurance policy with expired drivers licence (covid)

Posted 6th Dec 2020
My partner is looking to hire a car for one day in a couple of week's time. He does not currently have a car or active insurance policy and his licence expired a couple of months ago.

The DVLA have granted an 11 month extension to all licences that expired during the coronavirus period but when trying to hire a car (and place insurance as part of the process), we hit a real brick wall with insurers saying that they would not put a new policy in place due to his expired licence - even though an automatic extension has been granted.

Does anyone know if all insurers are refusing new policies on this basis or should there be no issue here?
