Drivers that are lucky enough to have gone years without needing to make a claim on their car insurance, reap the rewards when it comes to their insurance premiums. But what can you do if you’ve lost your No Claims Bonus after making what your insurer considers to be an ‘at fault’ claim, or you’ve been an additional driver on someone else’s policy and unable to build up any No Claims Bonus in your own name?
It’s a question that affects many drivers.
Your premium can go up substantially if you’ve lost your No Claim Bonus, especially if you’re a young driver. This can seem especially unfair if the accident was due to factors such as weather – for example, if your car skidded on a wet road, even though you were driving within the speed limit. If the other driver was at fault but wasn’t insured, you can also lose your no-claims discount and the same applies if your car is damaged by vandals. Having a driving conviction only makes matters more complicated.

Can there be a gap in a No Claims Bonus?
A gap in your no claims bonus (NCB) can occur for many reasons such as changing from being the main driver to a named driver (who don’t usually receive a NCB), taking a break from driving or living overseas.
It will vary between insurers, but a NCB will generally only last for two years. If your gap is longer than this, you may need to contact the company your NCB is with. They may still be willing to transfer it to a new policy. If not, you should shop around for an insurer who will accept it otherwise you will have to start again from scratch.
Can you transfer a No Claims Bonus from a company car?
Not every insurer will accept driving experience on a company car policy towards a private one. For insurers that do, they may require written evidence such as a letter from your employer confirming details of the vehicle. They may also only be willing if you had sole use of the car and whether it was insured for Social, Domestic and Pleasure (SDP).
Can you transfer a motorbike No Claims Bonus to a car?
If you are planning to trade your motorbike for something with more wheels, you may be wondering whether you can move your existing no claims bonus (NCB).
Many insurers acknowledge that your years of sensible experience driving a motorbike will transfer into the seat of a car. This is especially important for young drivers who may have started driving on the road but have decided to change for a more practical vehicle.
If you are in the unfortunate position of having to start your no claims discount again from nothing, Complete Cover Group can help you find an affordable quote even with zero no claims bonus.
