Labeled A High Risk Driver? We Can Help

Labeled A High Risk Driver? We Can Help

October 30, 2013 Car 0 Comments

There are two kinds of people in the world. Us and them. Low risk drivers and high risk drivers. It’s never fun to be on the outside looking in, and if you have been labeled high risk you will know what I mean.

As the name implies, many insurance companies define high risk drivers as those who are risky to insure due to their poor driving record, their inexperience, or even their credit history. For example, you may be considered a high risk driver if you have:

  • Received multiple speeding tickets or other traffic citations
  • Had one or more car accidents
  • Been convicted of Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
  • Just received your driver’s license
  • A poor credit history

Yes, accidents happen. But sometimes they are no fault of your own. Here a motorist who is now happily insured through’s SOS Car Insurance tells their story,

“Last year, my car was rear-ended 3 times within 10 months. All 3 accidents happened when my car was stationary while waiting at the traffic lights. I duly reported all 3 incidents to my previous insurer as required but claimed 3rd party insurance for the repairs. Never once did I touch my own policy as the accidents were not my fault. Guess what? My insurer refused to renew my insurance for the following year citing me as high risk. I was furious.”

If you are a motorist with some dings on your driving record, you might think it’s too expensive to get insurance. But, consider this, driving without car insurance is illegal,it’s also a huge gamble. One accident, especially with another uninsured motorist, can result in hundreds, sometimes thousands, of dollars in damages. And if you’re caught driving without insurance you could lose your license. Permanently.

Being labeled a high risk driver can be frustrating.

Fronting, a desperate measure that involves using another person’s better driving profile to obtain car insurance, is also illegal and can have serious consequences for everyone involved.

The good news is that insurance for high risk motorists is both available and affordable. So it is time to start shopping around, because, take it from someone who knows, all insurers are NOT the same.

“Sure, some auto insurance companies only insure individuals with flawless, or nearly flawless, driving records, but there are reputable high risk car insurance companies out there, you just have to be diligent in your search.”

At, we know that there are insurers who believe there are two kinds of people in the world. And those who don’t.
