I am the registered keeper of my car, but my now ex-partner is the name on the insurance policy and I am a named driver. We are no longer together, can I become the main name on the policy?

If the VC5 document is in your name which means you're the registered keeper, then you would be able to change the main driver to yourself without any problems. However your insurance premiums may change as a result. For example, it could increase if you have less driving experience or no claims bonus than your ex-partner.

You should also be aware that your insurer may charge you an administration fee to edit the policy documents and send it back to you.
