Yes you can, as long as the car is insured by LV=. In many instances you may decide that adding a friend or relative permanently onto your policy is the best option. However, temporarily adding a driver or vehicle to your LV= car insurance policy may be a preferred option for the temporary use of your vehicle or for adding a driver onto your policy short term.

If you want to add another driver to your existing policy, you can call us on 0800 032 9395.


To add a new driver, we need to know their:

  • Full name

  • Driving licence number or
  • Licence type (Full, Provisional), the year they got it and whether it's a UK, EU or another type of licence

Accidents or claims in the last 5 years - month and year of claim, claim type i.e. fault, partial fault, non-fault etc

It is important to remember that we reserve the right to cancel your policy should too many alterations be made throughout the life of your policy.
