How long do I have to declare a drink driving conviction for?

Insurance Revolution Drink Driver Insurance , Blog , Convicted Driver Insurance , FAQs

You have to declare a drink driving conviction, or indeed, any motoring offence, to your insurer for five years.

Endorsements such as DD40, DD60 and DD80 convictions (dangerous/reckless driving) must stay on your licence for four years from conviction, while less serious offences must stay on you licence for four years from the date of the offence.

Other offences, such as causing death by dangerous driving (CD40, CD50, CD60 and CD70) and drink or drug driving (shown on the licence as DR10, DR20, DR30, DR31, DR61 and DR80) can stay on your licence for 11 years from conviction.

But, whatever your conviction, Insurance Revolution has partnerships with underwriters who do not require you to declare your motoring convictions after five years, regardless of how long they are on your licence.
