Just got Mrs JD a little car to run around in and was ringing around for insurance for it and was going to put myself on it as a named driver when the bloke says to me: ''Have you got any non-motoring related convictions in the last ten years?'' They were going to charge an extra Â£400 to add me! Now a couple of questions on this. 1. What the fcuk has a non motoring coviction got to do with car insurance? I've got over 20 years no claims on my policy. 2. Why 10 years when legally a conviction is classed as spent and doesn't have to be declared after 5 years? Needless to say I wasn't happy and they didn't get any business off us. Is this the norm across the board and how and why can they do it? Any insurance bods on here enlighten me.
