For car owners: how do I nominate 'Additional Drivers' for my car?

You can nominate up to five friends or family to be covered under your insurance when driving your car.

You can edit this list at any time on-line - you just need to make sure to nominate them before they drive.

More info:

When you list your car with Car Next Door, you, your nominated ‘Additional Drivers’, and any other approved Car Next Door member can drive your car.

If any other person drives your car and causes damage, it will not be covered under our comprehensive insurance policy.

Nominating your ‘additional drivers’

If you wish to have any other people driving your car (e.g. your spouse, partner, adult son or daughter, flatmate or friend), you will need to add them as ‘Additional Drivers’. It’s easy to do, but you must do it before they drive.

To qualify, an Additional Driver must:

  1. hold a valid licence to drive (which may be an learner’s or provisional licence, noting however that a higher DCL will apply in respect of any Loss or Damage, as set out below);
  2. be nominated by you prior to driving the Vehicle;

  3. abide by the relevant terms and conditions of the Member Agreements when driving the vehicle; and

  4. not be a Member of Car Next Door, unless the person is also a member of your household.

To nominate Additional Drivers, or change your nomination at any time, log in to your car's profile and update the list of additional drivers.
