Kit Car Insurance
Building a car from the individual parts to a fully functional vehicle makes every kit car both a labour of love and an expression of your individuality. From the Ariel Atom to the Caterham Seven, there are many to choose from.
Every kit car is a unique creation, so you need an insurer with the specialist knowledge to make sure you don’t pay more for your kit car insurance than you should.

Things that could help you get cheaper kit car insurance
There are several steps you can take which might help lower the insurance cost of your kit car:
- If you don’t use your kit car every day, you could consider a lower mileage limit to reduce the cost of your insurance. This could be ideal if you mostly use your kit car on weekends.
- Some insurers give discounts if you are a member of a recognised owner’s club.
- Opt for a higher policy excess.
Are kit cars road legal?
According to the government:
“A kit-built vehicle is one where all the parts are supplied new by the manufacturer.”
You must register a new kit car with the DVLA. Details of how to register your vehicle can be found here.
We understand that as a car enthusiast you will take care of your creation – it’s your pride and joy, and our panel of insurers recognises that.
