Not all insurance companies appear on big brand comparison sites and many insurance companies often prefer to insure drivers with clean driving records, increasing the premiums for drivers with convictions considerably.
Insurance companies that specialise in insuring convicted drivers are able to spread the cost of the higher risk across all drivers they insure with convictions allowing them to offer more affordable insurance policies to drivers with criminal and motoring convictions.
You will receive quotations from several convicted driver insurers that can best meet your requirements. We work in partnership with Seopa Ltd to help make it easier for you to find & compare insurance quotes from convicted driver insurance companies. Once you have submitted your details you will receive a number of quotes to consider.

5 years. After five years your drink driving conviction will be classed as 'spent' under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.
You do not need to declare 'spent' convictions to insurers. Any insurance company who relies on endorsements relating to spent convictions in order to disadvantage a driver and increase premiums is committing an unlawful breach of their statutory duty.
While driving disqualifications become spent at the end of the disqualification period, any driving licence endorsement received for the same offence does not become spent for 5 years running from the date of conviction.
Convicted drink drivers are likely to see an increased cost for insurance for a period of five years following a drink driving conviction. You should shop around & get drink driving insurance quotes from different sources in order to find the best price.
The exact cost will vary greatly between different insurance companies & brokers. The cost will also depend on the level of cover required & your personal circumstances.
