Car insurance for convicted drivers can be difficult to find because many insurance providers do not have the products or expertise available to handle Convicted Driver insurance, while some of those that do may charge very expensive premiums to provide cover.
So, what’s the best car insurance for convicted drivers? Well, depending upon your individual circumstances, there are a number of ways to get a policy that suits your needs.
Finding The Right Car Insurance
Firstly, you should compare different quotes from different providers, and always make sure you understand what each insurance broker is offering and the limitations of their policies. Some brokers offering online prices may not always include everything you want, so it is beneficial to speak to a specialist to get the cover you need. Likewise, who will actually provide cover can vary depending on the convictions you have. Finding car insurance after serving a DR10 drink driving ban, for example, may be more difficult than finding a policy once you’ve received a few SP30 speeding convictions.
At Think, we consider all potential customers and convictions on a case-by-case basis, and there are other ways to reduce your premium. Consider adding a more experienced driver with a clean driving history to your policy as this can often help bring the cost down. Similarly, look at where you keep the vehicle overnight, parking it in a locked garage if possible as this can also help. You can also look at the car you drive, and if possible change it for something that is a lower insurance group and therefore cheaper to cover. Finally, making sure that you drive carefully and do not reoffend in future will make sure that your premium doesn’t increase due to additional driving convictions.
Another great way for convicted drivers to reduce the cost of their insurance is by completing one of the many courses offered across the UK. Courses such as the drink and drug driving rehabilitation courses offered by organisations such as OGWR DASH, HAPPAS and TTC help to educate drivers about the dangers of drink driving by showing them the potential outcomes of their actions. Upon completion of these courses, some specialist insurance brokers will offer you a discount on a Convicted Driver insurance policy as a reward for your commitment to becoming a better driver.
