Transfer of your NCD

Your No Claim Discount is not transferable to another person. However, you can transfer your NCD from one car to another.

For example: You've sold your 10 year old car and purchased a brand new one. You can transfer your existing NCD from your old car to the new car. If you bought a second car, you can decide which car will benefit from the NCD you've earned on your first car.

 

If you do not report an accident

If you do not report an accident to us within 24 hours or by the next working day and/or do not provide your car to us for inspection in accordance with the terms of the Motor Claims Framework, we may reduce your No Claim Discount upon renewal of your policy by a further additional 10%.

 

If you have been a named driver on someone else's insurance, you are not entitled to any NCD.

But if you have been driving a company car and you then buy a personal car, you would be allowed to transfer the NCD provided you can show the number of claims' free years you have with a letter from the HR department of your employer or from the leasing company.
