Warning to those who use a mobile phone whilst driving....

It has always been of the utmost importance that customers declare any motoring convictions at the inception and renewal of their policy.  However  from 1st September 2014 one of our largest insurers, Ageas, will not be offering a quotation (new or renewal) for customers who have had  a 'CU80 – Using A Mobile Phone' motoring offence on their licence within the last 5 years. 

Our message is of course -  please pull over to a safe place at the side of the road to answer or make calls and read or send messages – apart from the obvious dangers of using a phone whilst driving, a motoring conviction for doing so will now eliminate one of the most competitive insurers from your options, thereby making your premium more expensive.

If you already have a 'CU80' offence on your licence (within the last 5 years), please check with your insurer or broker that it has been declared…..even if you think you have already done so…..as the penalty for non-disclosure may lead to your policy being made void – especially if your insurer is Ageas.
