COVID-19 has put the brakes on so many plans of young people, including those who wanted to learn to drive. For many learner drivers, not only has this affected their mental health, there is a financial burden too as thousands of young people have seen their Theory Test Certificates expire, whilst they have been waiting for a driving test to become available as we’re in and out of lockdown.
Marmalade don’t think it’s good enough, so they have offered learners the chance to reclaim that DVLA £23 fee.
Here to help
To ease some of the stress this is causing learner drivers, the insurance brand is offering to refund the cost of the certificate for customers who have not had a chance to take their practical driving test and as such, have seen their theory test certificate expire during the UK lockdown period which started in March 2020.
- UK Provisional Licence holders who hold a valid Marmalade policy at the time of application that is past the 14-day cooling off period.
- Those able to provide proof of the expiry of their certificate during the lockdown period (the lockdown period is defined as being between 23rd March 2020 to the date that practical driving tests re-start your devolved nation).
