    As far as I am aware, you were insured as a provisional driver, now you are a fully qualified driver, therefore your insurance is invalid.

    Provisional insurance is also usually cheaper than regular, just a heads up.

    Yeah you were ( I assume ) only insured to drive with L plates and with somebody else in the car so you are not insured now that you have passed and are no longer a provisional driver. You will need to be re-insured as a passed driver.

    Like DotDotCurve said, it's also much cheaper as you are less of a risk to them because there is always somebody in the car to help you. Now that you are on your own it will cost a lot more.

    Well done on passing by the way !
