Does anyone know of a good company to use to get my new nanny insured. She will be using my car and my insurance company is going to charge me the earth (she has a clean Norwegian licence!).

Lusy, can you ask her to swap her license for a UK one?

When my DD starts school in Sept. 06 I will require that my nanny have a UK clean driver's license (or be willing to get one before the job begins).

This doesn't apply to my current nanny as her visa will expire before then.

Norway is treated as EU for all intense purposes (technically think its EEA like Switzerland) so there should be no difference than from a UK or French one for example (bet the Norwegian's drive better than the French though).

She's 23 which is probably the problem.

Think that still will be a problem if gets a full UK licence as will be treated as a "new" driver - know I had this when I came back from Canada and retook my test over here. had been driving accident/fine free for 8 years but was treated as a brand new driver here.

Will try Direct Line

Ah yes. I feel your pain. I am American and we qualify for no such license priviledge. I had to get a provisional license and take the bloody tests. Nightmare! Who the F**k drives like that AFTER they get a license, which is pretty much good for the rest of eternity over here. Crazy. I had been driving for some 16 years and suddenly I was a teenager again and had to walk to the fricken train when I was seven months pregnant cause I didn't have a license.

Beware, was recently told that a nanny is not eligiable as a named driver, because she is an employee.

In an accident it can null & void your policy.

Each insurer has a different veiw so shop around but be honest and bear in mind a simply spray job can run into £1000+.
