Having the right level of cover as a Driving Instructor can save you a lot of time and stress and let you focus on helping your students to master parallel parking or three-point turns. 

There are various skills you need as a Driving Instructor. Patience, people skills and the ability to distil confusing information into an easy, practicable and digestive way. You could have all this and more, but without a decent business insurance policy, why would students and parents pick your service?

The importance of DRIVING INSTRUCTOR insurance

Where would we be without our handy Driving Instructors? Most of us would likely still be riding around on horseback. With that said, it's essential to understand the value insurance adds to your business. Not only can it protect you, your equipment or the people around you. But it can also offer you new business avenues and appeal to more customers. 

At Rhino Trade Insurance, we insure thousands of tradespeople and self-employed individuals all over the country. We offer specialist policies for almost every profession, and that doesn't stop with Driving Instructors.


Public Liability Insurance FOR DRIVING INSTRUCTORS

No matter if you are a newly qualified driving instructor or have been hard at it for most of your career. Working in this profession has its risks. Because of this, we offer what is deemed our most popular type of insurance. Public Liability Insurance for Driving Instructors

This policy gets you moving in the business insurance world. Although it isn't a legal requirement (which is crazy for what it covers), it's a solid starting block. Think of it like this; everything grows from this cover. If you want gadget cover, you can get it, but it would be like buying tyres and wheels when you don't have a vehicle. 

Having a rock-solid public liability insurance policy protects you against the worst happening. If you manage to damage a customer's property, you are covered. If you injure a customer or member of the public, you are covered. Even in the unfortunate scenario of accidentally causing death, you are covered. The positives of this protection far outweigh any negatives you can come up with. And starting at just £72.80 a year, you'd be missing out big time!

But how would this cover me? We hear you ask. Well, let's imagine one of your students injures themselves when getting out of your car. They could decide to make a compensation claim against your business. This is where your Public Liability policy will cover you for any compensation costs. 

Rhino Trade Insurance can offer Driving Instructors Public Liability Insurance for just £6.07 a month. Within our policies, you can decide to take out a cover level of £1 million, £2 million or £5 million. Why not grab a quick and easy quote here?
