Non-driving related convictions: Even if your offence is not related to driving you may find that some insurance providers will still not offer insurance. However there is some good news as a conviction will become spent at a set time in the future, the table below provides information on this for driving convictions. Once the conviction is spent, you no longer have to declare it when purchasing insurance.
Declaring convictions for insurance: As tempting as it may be to not mention any criminal convictions when requesting insurance, it is absolutely essential that you do. Failure to detail any incidents, both driving convictions and non-driving can result in your insurance being invalidated when it comes to making a claim.
Other ways to keep your insurance to a minimum:
- Minimise your miles – the less you drive the lower premium
- Telematics – this is a popular option for young drivers and convicted drivers looking for cover. Using this technology will allow insurance providers to monitor your driving and reward safe driving with lower premiums
- Increased excess – upping your excess is a sure fire way to lower your premium, however bear in mind that you will pay more if you need to make a claim
- Secure vehicle – make sure your vehicle is fitted with an alarm if possible as that will help reduce your premiums too
