    Ive got a past motoring conviction its been 2 years since i got convicted .... It was a CD80 offence... and i had a bad accident... It happens but its really coming back to haunt me ... but its hard for me to get cheap insurance on a vauuxhall astra club 1248 ( 1.3L )

    Does everyone here have business insurance or normal car insurance ? ? ? ?

    I know that we all have public liability insurance :)

    I will only be carrying a trolley system with me so an astra van would be fine for me :)

    Whats the best way to go from here?

    I have considered getting someone else insured on my car and putting down any driver over 21 can drive it that would make me legible to drive it :)

    but any other ways?

    Thank you

    Hi mate,
    Im 23 with 6 points n pay £1200.

    Adrien fluxx.
    They deal with modified vauxhalls.
    And do commercial vehicals.
    Tell them you have mods;
    Tinted rear window,
    Alloy wheels,
    And water tank in the back.
    They will do a good quote. They only insure modded motors tho. Its worth a try.
    Also tell them your in a club (astraownersclub.com)
    Or you saw there stand at performance vauxhall show.

    Hope this helps.

    but 6 points is nothing compared to my conviction mate....6 points is so minor... my offence is a CD80 :) 9/10 insurance companies dont even look at me.I appreciate your help though :)

    Someone please help me and reply to my post

    your best bet is to just try the compare insurance sites you can do quotes with just you as a driver or add someone and see which way works out cheaper also try going fully comp i know it sounds wierd but its actually cheaper for me to be fully comp. and to be honest your gona pay a lot any way im 27 with 4 years ncb and no points or accidents and i still pay 670 for a 1.4 rover

    with a cd80, u got two options, as most insurance wont touch you after that conviction, did you get a ban as well

    1, go trad and walk
    2, get someone to drive you who can get insurance, but i think you will be paying a fortune for a few years, so you would need loads of work just to pay your insurance

    no, as i think it will be like that for about 4 years, they will charge you a fortune, do you kow any one over 40 who isnt work and start the business with them

    stays on record for 60 months ! im 21 months through it now ! and partnership in window cleaning is no good to me. I believe i can only make it work by my self !

    but insurance on a corsa van would be much cheaper then a astra van !

    not really with your convictions, i dont think it would make much difference, go on gocompare and see what the difference is

    you could make it work, but you might end up paying a fortune for insurance and make job not worth it,
