Drink Driver Insurance
I knew that my insurance premium was going to be a bit on the brutal side (due to a couple of hiccups over the last year), but thanks to you, I am still in business, confident that I will be going on to bigger and better things.

Drink driver insurance can be tricky to find, overpriced and sometimes complicated to sort out. At Insurance Revolution, we don’t believe it should be like that. So while we’ll never claim to be able to make insurance ‘fun’, what we can do is make the whole process hassle free and painless.
While some insurance providers will turn away drivers with drink driving convictions, we specialise in helping them with a suitable policy at a reasonable price.

For how long do I need to declare a drink driving conviction?
You only need to buy drink driver insurance for 3 – 5 years depending on the insurer you use. Some insurers require that you state drink driving convictions for 5 years where as others are more lenient at 3 years. However, some times the points will remain on your license for up to 11 years depending on the severity of the conviction. Convictions which remain on your license for 11 years include causing death by dangerous driving (CD40, CD60 and CD70) as well as DR’s including DR10, DR 20, DR30, DR31 , DR61 and DR70’s.
Will drink drivers insurance be more expensive?
In short, yes because in the eyes on any insurer, you are considered to be a higher risk than someone with a clean license. Insurers feel that, rightly or wrongly, you may be more likely to commit another driving offense, or take risks that other drivers would not which could compromise your own safety, or the safety of those around you.
Fortunately, we realise that sometimes you may get a drink driving conviction but not be the type of person to drive recklessly. Working with the insurers we have assessed the risks and secured some excellent rates for drink drivers insurance. Each individual case is different so sometimes, we may need a little time to go away and discuss your situation with the insurers to get you the best price available.
I’ve been sent on a drink driver rehabilitation course, will this affect my premiums?
Many insurers will take this into consideration for those seeking drink drivers insurance as it shows that you have put in efforts to learn more about driving and the consequence of drink driving. Most insurers will view this as a great move in the right direction. What’s more, the length of your ban is often shortened for taking the course meaning you are back on the road much sooner and able to start generating your no claims bonus again. You can only take a drink drive rehabilitation course if the court offers it to you at your hearing. If you are offered the opportunity to take one, but refuse, you cannot opt to take on later.
