Looking for car insurance after a driving ban? You’ve done your time off the road and paid your dues, all good, right? Wrong. Mainstream insurers will still consider you an increased risk and if they offer you a quote at all, it will be much higher than expected. Avoid paying ridiculous premiums by reading this handy guide to getting insurance after a driving ban.

Getting Car Insurance After A Driving Ban

Drivers with convictions are more common than you would think, so you’re not an unknown quantity. However, given the diversity of convictions available, the premiums offered are just as diverse. A general rule, however, is that the more severe the offence, the higher the premium. Be willing to negotiate with your insurers, the seemingly arbitrary nature of premiums allows some wriggle room.

Your previous insurer is certainly worth talking to. Depending on your circumstances, there may be some benefits, like a No Claims Bonus, you can leverage. Doing your research and shopping around is essential. Knowing your conviction code will give you an advantage during negotiations. Car insurance specialists like us are sensitive to convicted drivers and can offer a competitive deal on your insurance quote.

Remember the Golden Rules:

  1. Do Your Research
  2. Use Specialist Insurers
  3. Never Accept The First Offer

What Must You Disclose?

You have a duty to disclose all ‘material facts’ regarding your circumstances to insurance companies. Material facts include anything that would have a big impact on any decision an insurance company would make. This includes deciding cover, setting premiums, and making settlements.

The insurance company has an onus to ask you sufficient questions to satisfy their decision making, so you shouldn’t be caught out on some of the trickier elements, like unspent convictions.

Unspent, or unexpired convictions are classed as material facts. The Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 details how long it takes for a conviction to become spent. A driving ban is usually spent once the ban is lifted, but the almost inevitable accompanying fine lasts for five years after the sentence. So you could be unbanned, but still have an unspent conviction in the fine.
