    I insured my car online on Friday, me as the main driver with a provisional licence and my mother and father as named drivers. When I was reading the police yesterday I noticed 2 mistakes. One was that it said my house is rented but it’s privatly owned by my father and the other mistake is that I said neither my mother or my father own a car but they both do. Should I change this or would it be ok?

    Yes you should notify them of the mistakes. Insurance companies will use any slight error to avoid paying out for a claim.

    Definitely tell them, insurance companies don't like paying out and will literally find any excuse not to.

    As above. I'd definitely tell them; the insurance finds any little detail not to pay out in an event of a crash. Also, if you leave it you may risk your policy getting cancelled, which leaves you with hefty premiums in the future.
