Cheaper car insurance for the over 50s

The good thing about being a more experienced driver is that your years of careful driving could benefit you with a cheap car insurance quote. Whether you fall in the bracket of the over 50s, over 60s, over 70s or older, car insurance providers could reward you if you have a good driving history.

If you've celebrated your 50th birthday, then you could benefit from getting a quote with a specialist over 50s car insurance provider. Both Saga and Rias specialise in this age group. And with a potential accumulation of no-claims bonus under your belt, you may be able to reap the rewards of cheaper car insurance.

Specialists may also automatically include benefits that more mainstream providers charge as optional extras. This convenience could save you a lot of time and hassle, and may actually save you money too.

During these golden years of driving, being completely transparent with your provider and the DVLA is as important as ever. For example, by law, you must declare to the DVLA certain medical conditions or disabilities that may affect your driving.

There are many factors that insurers use when it comes to calculating the price you pay for insurance, and age is just one of them.

Our quarterly price index looks at car insurance prices up and down the country.

Take a look at our most recent price index update to see how much of a factor age may have on insurance prices.

What do I need to get a quote?

If you're in your 50s, 60s, 70s or 80s, finding a good deal on car insurance for over 50s shouldn't be a hassle. With the right information at hand, getting a great quote should be a matter of minutes away.

Having the following details ready may help speed things up:

  • Driving licence and history - You need information such as how long you've held your licence, the type of licence, and any driver convictions or disqualifications you've collected in the past 5 years.
  • Details on your car - Knowing the number plate will help us to find the information we need about your car. You should also make a note of any modifications made to the car.
  • No-claims bonus - If you've built up any no-claims bonus, you could be entitled to a discount on the price of your insurance. Whilst typically the maximum number of years insurers take into consideration is five, some insurers do offer discount on up to eight years.
  • Additional drivers - If you'd like to add an additional driver, also have their details ready.

I'm over 70. Is there anything else I need to know?

If you'll be turning 70 in the next 90 days, or if you're 70 or over, by law you must renew your driving licence - and then again every three years.

There’s no need to take a test, but your licence must be kept up to date with any medical conditions that may affect your ability to drive safely. These include:
  • epilepsy
  • diabetes
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • heart conditions
  • some eye conditions

It's free to renew your licence. You can find everything you need to know about renewing your licence at 70 here on the GOV.UK website, or by picking up a form from your local post office.
