Review Collingwood's Specialist Car Insurance now

Watch out for the £40 charge for passsing your test.

Be aware that if you pass your test your policy will be cancelled and you need to pay £40 for them to do it. also skip the first 10 reviews and read the genuine ones. Very poor penalising young people for passing their test.

Best deal.

I compared my deal with my friends who are also learner drivers and I definitely found the best deal. Very happy with the deal I found definitely affordable especially for my age. Definitely recommend.

The insurance was easy to arrange and seemed fine while learning (although we made no claims). However, on passing they issued a £25 bill rather than a reduction in the premium based on the months not used (but paid for). Collingwood then very aggressive in pursuing that amount. There is no mention of this on their website at all, it is hidden away in the detail of the T&Cs that are not sent out at any point. Feels like awful customer service to us and a shocking money grabbing approach to young people. Cannot recommend at all.

Collingwood insurance is currently… will scam you out of money

Collingwood insurance is currently scamming thousands upon thousands learner drivers out of hidden fees, if you pass you test thay will not issue you with any unused premium payed and will fine you with a £ 35 fee for passing your test, and will black mail you, with holding any no claims bonus certificate, and will pester you with threatening phone calls and text messages demanding money from you, this is a scam, I advise you to avoid this company like the plague, and report them to trading standards, let the press know, ie newspapers, TV stations, social media, let your mp know, write to Martin lewis for help, the public need to know this is a insurance scam targeting very young learner drivers,

Beware the small print as noted by others they sneakily apply a £35 cancellation fee after you pass your test and force the policy to be cancelled despite paying in full for 12 months and only using 8 months, I paid full 12 month fee plus cancellation fee Read more

This is not very transparent on their website.

Look elsewhere

Not a bad company UNTIL you pass. No refund then a £25 charge. Emails, Text & phone calls from them in a slightly menacing manner 1 day after cancellation of policy to collect said £25. Read small print or don’t cancel policy. Better still AVOID

Watch out for the fees added on when you pass

Price looks good when you take the policy, just a warning for the charges they will pile on at the end just because you pass, they also cancelled the policy against my request leaving the named driver uninsured and unable to drive the car home.

Took out an insurance policy for my daughter - paid in full - she passed 8 months later - her reward rather than a refund was to charge me an extra £35 admin fee to cancel the refund and no refund of the policy premium

Absolute rubbish, I discussed this when buying the premium and was told I would not get a full refund of when she passed but a percentage- they are now saying as I’ve used 2 3rds of the policy rather than a 33% refund I will get a 10% and a £36 charge meaning I owe them £17

My advice Do not use this company !!!!!!!!!
