Drink Driving Insurance

For motorists with drink driving convictions, getting affordable and fair insurance can prove difficult.

At Adrian Flux, we can get you an affordable drink driving insurance quote.

In general, you will need to declare DR10 to insurers for a minimum of five years after you received the conviction. At this point, it’s “spent” according to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. However, as DR10s stay on your licence for 11 years, you might still be penalised by insurers for the remainder of this time. This is where a specialist insurance broker like Adrian Flux can help.

This will depend on your insurance policy, but for the most part, a drink driving conviction won’t automatically invalidate your cover. However, if you’re involved in an accident at the time of drinking and driving, this might affect your ability to make a claim on your insurance. It’s always best to check your insurance policy to make sure.

It should be noted that in any case, changes in circumstances like this will need to be declared to your insurance provider.

You only need to declare a drink driving conviction for five years until it’s spent – find out more in our blog on how long you need to declare points for insurance.

This depends on a number of factors, including the type of conviction you received, the number of points you received, and if you were involved in an accident as a result of drink driving. You can find out more about this in our blog on whether points on your licence affect insurance.

If you’re looking for cheap car insurance after a drink driving ban, the best thing to do is to compare a number of different quotes – including those from drink drive insurance specialists like us – to find the best price at the level of cover you need.

This depends on the sort of DBS check you get. A standard DBS check will only show unspent convictions, i.e. those that are under five years old. An enhanced check, on the other hand, will show all convictions, whether spent or unspent.
