Shape your insurance policy

Finding affordable car insurance can be hard. It’s especially difficult to do so if you’re a convicted driver, looking for young convicted driver insurance or an individual with non-driving convictions.

The majority of insurance providers don’t have the expertise or technology to handle this type of policy. Others are able to do it but they may charge high insurance quotes.

Unlike our competitors, Quote Detective’s technology and underwriters have the capabilities of creating your policy based on your unique circumstances. As one of the UK’s leading convicted driver insurance specialist, we pride ourselves in being able to find some of the cheapest convicted drivers insurance for our customers.

What is Convicted Driver Insurance?

Convicted driving insurance is essentially the same as a standard car insurance policy. A major difference is that insurance providers recognise that the driver has unspent driving or non-driving convictions. These convictions are taken into account when insurers calculate premiums.

Similar to any other motor insurance policy, there are three differing levels of cover available to the policyholder. It’s worth noting that third party only (TPO) won’t always be the cheapest type of cover. You need to assess your circumstances properly and protect your vehicle accordingly.

Different types of offences will have a different impact on your quotes. Your insurance quotes will still be higher than drivers without convictions but how high those quotes are will depend on the offence.

For example, the highest category driving offence include drink driving and death by dangerous driving. Finding insurance will be extremely difficult because most insurance providers would want to stay away from that kind of liability.

But we don’t see it that way. Although we still have to take your convictions into account when calculating a premium, our team will do their best to find you affordable car insurance. Our experienced underwriters have helped thousands of convicted drivers get on the road at an affordable rate.

Finding the right car insurance

We encourage our customers to do their due diligence. Our broker panel can get quotes from all the top UK insurance providers so we can get you the best price possible.

Comparison sites can be a great way to get an idea of market prices so you are able to obtain the cheapest quote possble.  Bear in mind that if you do not declare any unspent convictions, your insurance will be invalid and therefore it will be harder to find insurance the next time you go looking.

What insurance cover do I need?

It is a legal requirement to have at least third party only (TPO) insurance cover on your car if you drive in the UK. We offer three levels of cover for car insurance.

In a nutshell:

By law, all drivers need to have third party only. TPO only covers damages on the other driver’s car if you’re involved in an accident

This type of policy covers the same as TPO, plus the addition of fire damage and theft to your car. 

Fully comprehensive provides cover to both your car and the other driver’s car if you’re involved in an accident. Plus it covers medical and legal expenses and liability insurance.

Choosing which cover you want to go for is totally up to you. But bear in mind that, selecting TPO over comprehensive won’t mean your insurance quote will be cheap. It’s important to see how much you’ll be quoted on each policy, so you can properly assess which option is best for you.

How to compare your car insurance

Our insurance panel has access to the UK’s top insurance provider, so all you’ll need to do is compare your car insurance through us. Here are four things you’ll need to have close to you when you’re trying to get cheaper car insurance quotes.

Have your personal details ready for your quote journey. This includes, your name, address, date of birth, occupation and your drivers license number.

The next step is to tell us about your car. This includes, it’s previous owners (if applicable), the model, make, year and any modifications.

What type of cover do you think you’ll need? Think carefully on how you’ll be using your car. Tell us your annual mileage and whether you’d like TPO, TPFT or comprehensive cover.

After all those steps are complete, you’ll get your quote. Now, it’s up to you, to choose which quote you want.

If you require any further assistance or you’d rather have someone talk you through your options because your quote is too high. Please reach out to our team, 0333 222 4005.

Don’t go without insurance

It may be tempting to drive without insurance because you’re having a hard time finding affordable policies. This is illegal and can result in a hefty fine.

You can also be subjected to a driving ban which may even result in the seizure of your vehicle and its consequent destruction.  Not only is this a real inconvenience, but it means that finding insurance in the future will be a lot harder to obtain and possibly even more expensive.
