Why You Need Insurance
Every UK motorist needs to be insured in order to be compliant with the law. Regardless of your conviction, having the right insurance in place is key to the continued safety of yourself and other road users. You need third party only (TPO) insurance as a legal minimum, which covers the cost of damage to another vehicle in the event of an accident.
People with convictions can struggle to find car insurance, regardless of whether their conviction was for a driving offence. Any kind of legal trouble can be seen as a negative by insurance companies, and may therefore refuse to cover you. On the other hand, there are some brokers that will cover you if the conviction is not driving or fraud related. However, there are also companies out there who specialise in providing this type of cover.
