With a DR90 endorsement on your license, you need specialist insurance. Having been charged with being in control of a car while on drugs, you will find it hard to get back on the road with proper insurance. Any insurance quotes you get will be charged at a high premium because of the endorsement. Insurers consider you an increased risk and will up premiums accordingly.
A DR90 conviction code revolves around being in control of a vehicle while unfit because of the effects of drugs. The distinction of this conviction code and a DR80 is the being charge of a vehicle does not require you to be driving it. You must be in the car, with keys to be deemed in charge of a vehicle.
If convicted of failing to supply a specimen, your DR90 endorsement remains on your driver’s licence for 4 years from the date of your offence. In addition to any other punishment, you will receive 10 points on your license. If you acquire 12 or more points within 3 years, you will be banned from driving.

Motor offences that are classed as drink or drug related are often the result of innocent mistakes. Unfortunately, drivers with drink driving endorsements on their licence are faced with insurance premiums that are significantly higher than drivers with clean licences. We offer special drink driver car insurance policies so you can save up to 50% on your insurance premium.
It is essential that you disclose any and all convictions you have when shopping for car insurance. Failure to disclose is a breach of the law and will invalidate your insurance. Plus, if you are stopped by the police, you will receive a driving ban. This will make finding insurers willing to cover you in the future extremely difficult.
