Securing temporary car insurance with convictions or points on your license can be a tricky proposition. People who have been caught speeding or driving dangerously are always likely to face higher premiums than most, and the same applies to temporary policies.
Someone who is convicted for speeding will usually face having three to six points placed upon their license. In those circumstances where a person picks up 12 points, the equivalent to a very serious conviction or four standard speeding tickets, within three years they will be banned from driving.
These convictions and bans can have a dramatic effect on your ability to access affordable temporary car insurance. The quotes you will get from companies will be high due to their viewing your past actions as a disregard for road safety laws.
