What is dangerous driving?

Insurance Revolution Dangerous Driving , Convicted Driver Insurance , FAQs

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) defines dangerous driving by the behaviour of the driver not what the driver believes, as a driver may think they are driving safely when they are in fact committing a dangerous driving offence.

A person is considered to be driving dangerously when: the way they drive falls far below the minimum acceptable standard expected of a competent and careful driver and it would be obvious to a competent and careful driver that driving in that way would be dangerous.

Examples of dangerous driving include racing, overtaking dangerously and driving despite knowing a vehicle has a dangerous fault.

The following endorsement codes relate to dangerous driving offences:

  • DD10 – Causing serious injury by dangerous driving
  • DD40 – Dangerous driving
  • DD60 – Manslaughter or culpable homicide while driving a vehicle
  • DD80 – Causing death by dangerous driving
  • DD90 – Furious driving
