About us

At Midrive, we’re reinventing driving and insurance for the digital generation. The old way of doing things is broken. 53% of learners fail their first test. Of those who pass, 1 in 5 crash in the first 6 months. That’s unacceptable.

Our technology helps learners find top-rated instructors and access pay-as-you-go insurance, so they can pass-first time and ultimately become safer drivers.

Since launch, over 300,000 young people in the UK have used our apps, data and tech to gain their independence. We are growing quickly and are now available in over 100 towns and cities in the UK, expanding to a new one each week.

Founded in 2013, Midrive has raised over £7.5m to date from a respected group of well-connected and supportive investors ‒ including Holiday Extras & Initial Capital. You may have heard about our recent crowdfunding round which was the 4th largest equity fund-raise target in Crowdcube's history.

We’ve recently been named #19 in the Startup 100, the annual ranking of the most game-changing and exciting new businesses launched in the last three years. We were also named ‘Digital Business of the Year’ by the Federation of Small Businesses in 2017.
