If you’ve been convicted of attempting to drive or driving when unfit to drive through drink, you’ll have a DR20 conviction on your license.
What is the difference between a DR10 and a DR20 conviction? A DR10 occurs when the driver is above the legal limit. However, a DR20 occurs when the driver is unfit to drive through drink.
This means that you can still receive a DR20 conviction if you’re unfit to drive, even if you’re under the legal drink driving limit.
If you’re convicted of a DR20 offence, you’ll receive 3 to 11 points on your driving license.
Remember: if you receive more than 12 points on your license in a three year period, you’ll be banned from driving.
How long will the DR20 conviction stay on my license for?
A DR20 conviction will stay on your license for 11 years from the date of the conviction.
What is DR20 insurance?
If you’ve been convicted of a DR20 offence, you may struggle to find cheap car insurance.
This is because insurance companies see drink drivers as high risk categories, which means that your insurance premiums will increase dramatically. In fact, some of the larger insurers won’t even provide cover for drivers with a DR20 conviction.
If you choose to take out a specialised DR20 insurance policy, you could cut costs on your premiums.
It is essential that you disclose any convictions you have when getting car insurance quotes. Failure to do so could result in your insurance being deemed invalid, and you could end up with another conviction on your license.
