Van insurance acceptance criteria

To be able to provide you with a quote, we've made some assumptions about the details of your policy.

You and all drivers:

  • Are permanent residents of England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland. We're sorry but we can't offer quotes for residents of the Channel Islands
  • Have no criminal convictions, have never been refused insurance, had any special terms imposed or had a policy cancelled or declared void by an insurer
  • Have advised the DVLA/DVANI of any notifiable medical condition and the DVLA/DVANI have agreed to the issue of a licence
  • The policy holder is the main user of the vehicle.

The van is not:

  • A Q plate
  • A grey import
  • Used to carry hazardous goods
  • Used in connection with the motor trade
  • Used to carry passengers for hire and reward or tows a trailer
  • Refrigerated, an ice cream van, a horsebox, a milk float, a mobile shop, a hot food dispenser, a camper van or a minibus.

Any no claims discount being used:

  • Is not being used on a different policy
  • Was earned in the UK within the last two years
  • Was earned on a van policy in your name (not as a named driver).

Please make sure these assumptions are correct before buying your policy.
