The scheme covers most modifications (excluding nitrous, roll cages or bhp increases of over 100bhp). All makes and models are considered eligible. Drivers of performance type cars must be aged 25 or over with 2 years' experience of driving that car or one of similar performance (sometimes aged 30 with one year's experience is acceptable - depending on overall risk profile). For most Kia and other makes drivers only need to be aged over 19 for TPF&T or 22 for Comprehensive. All drivers must have held a licence for at least 1 year and have a minimum 1 year's NCB.

Quotes subject to individual circumstances including restrictions on claims/convictions (no more than 1 SP/PC/PL conviction per driver). Sorry but we are not competitive for some of the M, L, OL and SK1-12 postcodes and can't quote for Northern Ireland. Some postcodes require the car to be parked off the road overnight.

This insurance scheme is administered by Chris Knott Insurance who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority.

It's a good question and one we come across quite often.

The good news is that windscreen claims don't affect your premium but strictly speaking they should be disclosed to the next insurer where they ask the question "Have you had any claims, regardless of fault, in the last 5 years?".

As I said it shouldn't affect your premium at all nor reduce your NCB.

Brilliant, thanks Jem. Get him to quote code 480 and your CK reference and you'll get £20 OFF your own renewal if he goes ahead.Edited by: ChrisKnottIns

I have another question,Ive now had to come out of my Job to look after my daughter so now im going to be the house husband,As im hoping this is going to be short term will i need to phone up to get this amended?

I also hope this isn't going to make the insurance go up,I know there has been things on the news saying how out of work people get it tough having to pay a higher insurance.

Being a house husband my car use would be near enough the same if anything a little bit less.

Dam granny/grandad getting older.

You should let us know but it shouldn't make any difference to the premium if you're genuinely a house husband rather than unemployed. If you get any problems, tell them to refer it to their manager Paul.

Only your insurer can answer that specifically but I have heard anecdotes that once you've been involved in an accident you're more likely to have another one so the risk has changed. I don't know if that's borne out by stats. I suspect so.

If you'd like us to have a look around for a better quote for you, please give us a call at the appropriate time.

best,
Nick

It seems that once you are on the insurance industry database it is very difficult to get removed from it.

My wife was involved in an "incident" 4 years ago when, while we were waiting to turn right, the car behind us was pushed into our rear by the car behind him. Our car wasn't damaged other than a couple of small chips so we informed our insurance stressing there was no claim made. My wife didn't lose her no claims bonus but every quote since then has included a surcharge due to her name being on the database. I've tried to get it removed but to no avail. She is now deemed a "risk" even though she was pronounced totally innocent of blame.

Hi, yes we do like this kind of arrangement but we'll recommend the best insurer for each individual car to ensure you get the best rate. You'll still have just the one point of contact for all of them.

Best,
Nick
