Many drivers aged over 60 find that their car becomes an even more important necessity in retirement, as they start to make the most of their free time with day trips, weekends away and opportunities to visit family and friends. Access to a car can have a big impact on older drivers' independence and quality of life.
Fortunately, as one of the most statistically safe age groups for driving, finding the right comprehensive car insurance policy needn’t be a chore. Age Co Car Insurance for over 60s, offers a range of features and optional extras designed specifically for mature drivers to ensure you’re protected on the road.
With more experience on the road and a tendency to be particularly cautious, older drivers are not only welcomed but rewarded with a competitively priced policy. Unlike other providers, Age Co appreciates that age is nothing but a number, and so we have no upper age limits on our insurance policies. We also welcome younger named drivers to be added to your policy, subject to acceptance by the insurer.
Years of experience will certainly work in your favour and earn you a low-risk status, particularly if you can boast a large period of no claims. Statistically, mature drivers are less likely to be involved in an accident than younger drivers, and this will be considered in your car insurance quote. However, other factors such as your location, claims history and the type of car you drive will still influence the cost of your policy.
There are certain medical conditions that may affect your driving. You must notify the DVLA and your insurance company if there are any changes in your health that may affect your driving. If you are not sure what conditions might affect your driving, you can check the list on the gov.uk website.
If you fail to notify both the DVLA and your insurance company about any health conditions that may affect your driving, your insurance policy may become invalid, and you could even be prosecuted if you’re involved in an accident as a result.
Legally, you must be able to read a car number plate 20 metres away to be able to drive. You can take advantage of a free NHS eye test, available to everyone aged 60 and above.
