Drink driving is a high risk, zero reward activity; a single bad decision having irreparable consequences. Being caught driving under the influence has severe reprimands ranging from 12 month driving bans, fines to prison time in some instance.
Many insurers are hesitant to provide cover to drivers who have had DR10, DR20 or DR30 driving bans; those that don’t rule you out, are quick to inflate your premiums.
Keith Michaels are different. We are specialist car insurance experts and are highly regarded for finding the best policy that suits your circumstances. We save you money, even if you have been convicted of driving under the influence, thanks to our industry leading schemes.
Drink driving convictions become spent 5 years after the date of conviction. Once a drink driving conviction is spent, it is treated as though it it never happened and you don’t have to declare it on visa applications, job applications or when you renew car insurance.
Getting car insurance after a drink driving charge can be challenging. Some insurers charge high premiums or flat out refuse to insure drivers who have been convicted. At Keith Michaels we provide a service that helps get you back on the road at a fair price by working on a case by case basis. We do not discriminate for previous convictions & always look to offer insurance tailored to your needs.
We appreciate the importance of being fair. A drink driving conviction is disruptive many years down the line, having potential implications for both your personal life and employment prospects. We appreciate that the majority of those who are convicted wish to draw a line under their past indiscretions and become safer drivers. We are highly supportive of these efforts, offering 50% discounts to convicted drink drivers that attend rehabilitation courses.
At Keith Michaels we are well established providers of drink driver insurance; we are highly adept at tailoring your policy to your requirements and are highly efficient at mitigating the escalating cost of a driving conviction. The worst course of action is not to declare a drink driving conviction as it risks invalidating your insurance should you attempt to make a claim.
We have a team in place that are trained specifically in dealing with drink driver insurance and drink driver car insurance, we are confident that when it comes to convictions like the DR10 we will be the most competitive specialist insurer for you.
The DR10 conviction is the most common type of drink driver conviction, given to those driving or attempting to drive with a blood alcohol level above the legal limit. We deal with clients looking for DR10 car insurance daily and pride ourselves on our ability to offer fare rates.
It is important to understand that insurance companies see someone with a drink driving conviction as being at higher risk of claiming on their insurance. This is why insuring someone with a drink driving conviction costs so much more. With that in mind, here are some tips on how to get the best value insurance for you.
