Guys if I have a provisional license and im insured on a car as the policy holder, does only the 2nd driver in the car have to be with me for me to drive it or can any driver who has a full UK License be inside the car?

Law is someone who has held their license for 3 years or more with a clean license has to be with you at all times and you have t be insured to drive the car.

Dont think they have to be insured as they are not driving.

the other driver HAS to have insurance. he / she dosnt have to be a named driver on the insurance on that car but must be insured to drive any car on thier own policy - this is normal cover on most fully comp insurance. the reason is the driver must be able to take over if the learner is incapacited or there is a diversion on that may put the car on a restricted road such as a motorway. without thier own insurance they cant do this. i found this out some years back when teaching my wife. we got pulled over and the police wanted to see both her insurace and mine to see if i was any vechile cover.
