As with most things in the insurance world this varies wildly from insurer to insurer, some insurers do place a maximum age limit on starting a new policy which can be as low as age 65. However there are only a handful who have a maximum age limit as low as 65 with many insurers now allowing new joiners up to age 75 and some having no restriction on the age at which you can start a new plan.
