Driving Licence Points, Your Insurance And How To Stay On The Right Side Of Legal This Autumn

With Christmas bonuses (or there lack of, thanks to Covid-19..) being the height of many traffic warden’s agendas at this time of year. It’s becoming increasingly difficult to travel while finding those sneaky cops who actively shy away in plain sight just waiting for you to “cock-up”!

Stick to the speed limit, or a tad below if you can..

Car insurance is complicated at the best of times for most people, but when you have penalty points on your driving record, you will likely be worried about how it will all affect your insurance. It makes sense, you want to be on the road and happy to be driving, and you can’t feel that way when there are points on your licence. One area that is affected when you have points on your licence is your insurance.

Why?..

Most of the time, you can still get insurance when you have points on your driving licence. One Sure can help, for example. But fewer insurers cover those with points, which is why it’s so important to buy the right one. When you receive points on your licence, you become a risk. Whether the points are for speeding or for an offence while driving, you are seen as reckless in your movement on the road. Anypoints means that you are likely to be more expensive if you make a claim on your insurance. So, here are some of the things to consider when you are getting insurance with points on your licence.
