In the United Kingdom driving while under the influence of alcohol is an illegal offence and getting caught doing so by the police can have serious and wide ranging consequences on a person’s life. A DR10 is an endorsement issued to those caught attempting to drive while drunk by the police and the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA). Being issued with a DR10 means car insurance will become a substantially more expensive proposition in the long term.
In the short term, however, there will most likely be a year’s ban from driving and maybe even a Community Order or prison sentence. It is perhaps not surprising that many insurance companies are likely to be unwilling or reluctant to give quotes for car insurance to individuals with previous convictions. While there will be some providers who will willing to offer car insurance to those with a DR10, it is likely that they be charged higher premiums.
See below for providers who offer quotes for drivers with DR10 endorsements.
