A DR80 on your driving licence means that you have been convicted of driving or attempting to drive when unfit through drugs.
How long will a DR80 stay on my licence?
A DR80 will stay on your licence for eleven years from the date of conviction.
What is DR80 insurance?
Insurance companies view anyone with a DR80 as a high-risk driver to the extent that convicted drivers can find it difficult to find a policy that covers them. Despite this, there are specialist car insurance companies who can work with DR80 drivers, and even cut the cost of their premium.
Will a DR80 conviction increase the cost of my car insurance?
Unfortunately yes, your premium may not be as cheap as it was before you had a conviction, but we can help by treating you fairly and providing reasonable and competitive quotes, which take into account your driving convictions. Finding insurance when you have convictions can be more expensive and some insurers will simply refuse to cover you, but we can help. Insurance is priced based on risk, insurers will work out what the likelihood is of you being involved in a claim, and this is how the price is generated. They will take your driving record into account along with many other factors. Someone who has a clean licence will be rated safer than someone with a DR80 conviction. We understand that it is sometimes not possible to pay higher premiums in one go, but we can also offer monthly payments to help with the financial burden. There are ways you can help keep the premiums as low as possible, for example you can choose to put a higher excess on your policy, or you can drive a vehicle in a lower insurance category. You can read about some of the cheaper cars to insure here. Your premiums will not be more expensive forever, a DR80 conviction will stay on your licence for 11 years. So you will not always need to disclose these convictions. Also, the older the conviction is, the less it will affect your insurance premium. Eventually you will have a clean licence again. In the meantime you can find affordable premiums with Insurance Revolution, and let us help you get you back on the road.
