You need CU80 car insurance if you have been convicted of using a mobile phone whilst driving a motor vehicle. If you have a CU80 endorsement on your driver’s license you will find it difficult to get a good deal on your car insurance. Insurers consider anyone with such an endorsement on their license a higher risk that other drivers and increase premiums accordingly.
You are given a CU80 endorsement on your driver’s license if you are caught using your phone while driving. In the modern world of communication technology, it is important for drivers to use ‘hands-free’ options. It is a necessity that not only protects you, but people around you. If you need to make a call while you are driving, make sure you pull over and stop before doing so.
If you are convicted of using a mobile phone while driving, you will also receive 3 points on your driver’s license. The endorsement and points remain on your license for 4 years from the date of the offence. If you acquire more than 12 points on your license, you are subject to a driving ban.
