No Claims, when not insured on a vehicle? How long do they last?

I have like 5-6 years no claims.


I last insured a car in 09 and ended 2010.

I have heard if you don't insure a car within a time frame you can lose them?!

STUPID OR WHAT

Anyone know what it is though!?

I agree!!! I'm insured on Miswah's car and have a company vehicle.

So why can't I just keep my no claims!

Take it in turns to insure the miswahs car, prob better than insuring the Fezzie and never using it?

Just get a proof of no claims cert each year when the insurance is in the other halfs name!

I think some companies have a limit of 12 months and it is simply an excuse to put up your premium.

How about if you drive for a year or two in your early twenties then don't drive for 20 years and now want to insure a car in your forties? Should your no claims still count? OK, it's an extreme example but I can see why no claims has a time limit. 2 years is a little bit stingey though, should maybe be 5 years minimum.

Thats odd, when I was last insured with Bell, they told me my 15 years no claims would reduce by 1 year for every year I didnt have an insurance policy, capped at 5 years. This was a phone call discussion so I have no proof, but is in direct contrast to the answers above...

Providing you take out a new policy within 2 years of the last one, your NCD will still be valid. One of the reasons I bought the Eunos Roadster was to activate a policy and not lose my 9 years NCD.

I am driving though, but on company insurance and also on Miswah's policy. So why should my no claims be taken away from me.

Hopefully they are currently still valid

You may well find that if you can show you've been insured on and driving other cars that they take that in to account

I had similar when I sold my car and bought a motorbike whilst being a named driver on my parents car for when I needed it. When I went to get insured for my own car a few years down the line they took my motorbike no claims in to account so I didn't start from scratch.

I've just renewed my insurance through LV.

On their terms and conditions your NCB must have be earned within the last 12 months.
