But it doesn’t have to be this way. Bikesure understand that riders with convictions are not really very different from most riders without convictions. And for those riders with points accumulating on their licenses, they are more likely to be more careful in future in order to avoid a ban.
Cheaper Motorcycle Insurance with Convictions
Whether you have motoring or criminal convictions, it’s important to choose a company that sees you as an individual, rather than a statistic. By understanding the circumstances of a conviction, we can often offer you a cheaper rate, because we don’t have to assume the worst.
For example, we know that riders with a drink driving conviction usually learn from their experience, and the vast majority never re-offend, so our rates can reflect this fact, rather than punishing you out of proportion to the risk.
The plethora of speed cameras, CCTV and new regulations means that it is easier than ever to pick up a motoring conviction, even for a momentary lapse in concentration. Years ago, if someone was caught speeding and taken to court, then chances were, they sped most of the time, but with fixed penalties, Gatso cameras on so many of our roads, not to mention powerful bikes capable of rapid acceleration, these assumptions no longer hold true – and even accidentally straying above the limit for a few seconds can land you with an SP30 and three points before you can blink.
Even so, many insurance companies continue to apply hefty premiums to anyone with any kind of conviction, regardless of these changes, or of the individual merits of the risk. In truth, many companies simply lack the experience and know-how to determine a fair price in these cases. That’s why, if you need convicted rider insurance, it pays to speak to a specialist broker like Bikesure.
