CD40 car insurance is needed if you are convicted of causing death through careless driving while unfit through drink. As a result of this conviction you will receive a CD40 endorsement on your license. This will make it hard to get a decent quote on your car insurance.
How You Got A CD40 Conviction Code
Driving carelessly while unfit through drink and causing death is how a CD40 endorsement is earned.
Penalties For Causing Death Through Careless Driving While Unfit Through Drink
You will receive a CD40 endorsement on your license if you cause death through careless driving while unfit through drink. You will get three to eleven points on your license for eleven years from the date of the conviction. If you earn 12 penalty points within three years, you get a driving ban.

CD40 Car Insurance
CD40 car insurance should be sought from specialist brokers. The endorsement on your license means that insurers will consider you an increased risk. As a result, your quote is more than likely to be much higher than expected.
However, our specialist brokers are happy to help with your search by finding the best insurance policy for the best possible price.
At Keith Michaels we know you’re a person, not a policy number. We can provide a range of car insurance quotes that are tailored to your personal situation, to keep your premium as representative as possible and back on the road as soon as possible.
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. If you are stopped by the police, you will receive a driving ban. For more handy information for CD40 convicted drivers, click here.
