If you’ve just passed your driving test or bought a new car and need to insure it before you get out on the road, it can be a bit of a minefield. As well as sussing out the different types of car insurance, you will also need to get organised and know what information you need to provide to potential insurers. Having your documents at your side when you’re shopping for car insurance will make the process easier and faster to compare insurance quotes.
So without further ado here’s a checklist of the information you need when buying car insurance.
This one’s a bit of a no-brainer, but you will need your driver’s licence to hand in case you need to input any information from it. On a side note, you should always keep copies of your licence in case it goes missing.
You need to bring with or have to hand any vehicle registration forms as proof of ownership.
Current declaration page
If you already have existing insurance for the vehicle you want to insure, it’s time to unearth your existing insurance declaration page plus any other documents related to your policy. You never know when you might need to access those T&Cs!
When you purchase a new car insurance policy you’ll be asked questions about whether you’ve ever had a past policy terminated, declined or voided in the past.
Something to keep in mind
After you’ve bought your shiny, new car policy your insurer can cancel your policy if you fail to disclose certain information. If you give false information on purpose it counts as fraud and could mean your insurance is voided.
Never lie or give false information, not only could you risk losing that great deal you’ve just found, but you will also find it much more difficult to get a new policy in the future.
