Compare insurance quotes from specialist drink driver insurance providers
Let insurance companies compete to offer you their best deal on your car insurance!
When asked how long have you held your driving licence by insurers you should enter the date you passed your test to gain the licence you hold rather than the date you got your driving licence back after your disqualification.
View your driving licence online to obtain dates & details of disqualifications, endorsements & penalty points.
You will receive quotes from specialist insurance companies who provide affordable insurance cover to drivers who have previously been banned from driving for committing offences such as drink driving.
Not all insurance companies appear on big brand comparison sites and those that do often prefer to insure drivers with clean driving records, increasing the premiums for drivers with convictions considerably.
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 select convicted driver insurers that can best meet your requirements.
Simply click the get quote button above, fill out a short insurance quote form and you will receive quotes from multiple insurers who all specialise in insuring drivers with criminal convictions such as drink driving.
It can be difficult to find affordable insurance after a drink driving conviction. Some insurance companies will refuse to provide cover at all!
The good news is some insurance companies specialise in providing insurance cover to drivers with convictions and it may not actually cost as much as you think to insure a car if you are a convicted drink driver with an endorsement on your driving licence.
It pays to shop around for car insurance, especially when you are a drink driver convicted of a motoring offence such as drink driving.
The difference between prices from one insurance company to another can be vast, literally hundreds of pounds!

The insurance comparison service we use allows convicted drivers to obtain insurance quotes from multiple insurance companies who specialise in providing non-standard, high risk insurance policies for convicted drink drivers.
You have to declare a drink driving conviction to insurers for a period of five years beginning from the date you were convicted. After five years your drink driving conviction will be classed as 'spent' under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.
Spent convictions do not need to be declared to insurance companies and 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.
All driving licence endorsements have a five year rehabilitation period before they are classed as spent under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act.
Drink driving is not the only motoring offence that can increase the cost of insurance premiums. Convicted drivers who have any of the following endorsements on their driving licence could also face increased costs for car insurance:
|(these driving licence endorsements remain on driving licence 11 years from date of conviction)|
|DR10||Driving or attempting to drive with alcohol level above limit||3 - 11|
|DR20||Driving or attempting to drive while unfit through drink||3 - 11|
|DR30||Driving or attempting to drive then failing to supply a specimen for analysis||3 - 11|
|DR31||Driving or attempting to drive then refusing to give permission for analysis of a blood sample that was taken without consent due to incapacity||3 - 11|
|DR61||Refusing to give permission for analysis of a blood sample that was taken without consent due to incapacity in circumstances other than driving or attempting to drive||10|
|(these driving licence endorsements remain on driving licence 4 years from date of offence)|
|DR40||In charge of a vehicle while alcohol level above limit||10|
|DR50||In charge of a vehicle while unfit through drink||10|
|DR60||Failure to provide a specimen for analysis in circumstances other than driving or attempting to drive||10|
|DR70||Failing to co-operate with a preliminary roadside test||4|
Many insurance companies recognise and take into account the completion of The Drink Driving Rehabilitation Course.
Completing the drink driving course could see a reduction in insurance premiums and will decrease the length of your driving ban by up to twenty five percent.
As well as attending the drink driving rehabilitation course here are a few more tips to help you decrease your car insurance premiums:
Another factor to consider is the insurance group rating of your car.
All cars are listed under a particular insurance group. The greater the cost of a car to repair and the greater the engine size & speed of a car usually means it will fall into a higher insurance group rating.
The higher the insurance group rating, the higher the insurance premium will be. The reverse is also true.
Consider getting a car with a low insurance group rating when you first take to the roads after a driving ban, this will help reduce your premium until your driving record improves again (this will usually be five years after any driving conviction/offence).
