Driverguard is a brand new product designed to help drivers cope more easily with a driving ban or loss of licence.
Starting at just £75 for an annual policy, Driverguard offers you peace of mind that if you should get caught by one or more of the 6,000 speed cameras on Britain's roads, your lifestyle can continue unimpeded by a lack of transport.
But it doesn't stop there, because if you take out one of the premium options, you can also claim if you are unable to drive through injury or if you require a courtesy car following a fault accident or theft claim. You are also covered for expenses to complete your journey, should you have an accident.
