When you get a quote with us, we do need to know if you've received any driving convictions within the last five years.

You should always check what type of conviction you have on your license and how many points you received (if any). Here's a list of the most common driving convictions and their corresponding codes.

CU codes are for convictions to do with the makeup of the car and the use of the car:

  • CU10        Using a vehicle with faulty brakes
  • CU20       Causing danger by using a vehicle that's unsuitable or in a dangerous condition
  • CU30       Using a vehicle with a damaged tyre
  • CU40       Using a vehicle with faulty steering
  • CU50       Causing danger through the amount of load or passengers
  • CU80       Using a mobile phone while driving

IN codes are for convictions related to your insurance (hopefully we can make sure you never get this one!):

  • IN10         Using a vehicle uninsured against third party risks

SP codes are for convictions related to speeding:

  • SP10        Exceeding goods vehicle speed limits
  • SP20       Exceeding speed limit for type of vehicle (excluding goods or passenger vehicles)
