Car Insurance Renewals: What you need to remember

In 2011 the government introduced Continuous Insurance Enforcement, which means that, if you own a car, it has to be taxed and insured, even if it is not in use, unless it has been declared off the road through a Statutory off Road Notice(SORN).

Failure to do so will unfortunately result in a fixed penalty notice, and eventually you could have your vehicle seized.

Car insurance auto-renewals with Kwik Fit Insurance Services

In the UK, it is a legal requirement that your vehicle has adequate insurance. Kwik Fit Insurance Services makes it easy for you to renew your car insurance automatically, giving you peace of mind that you'll never be left uninsured.

It can be very easy to lose track of your specific car insurance policy start and end dates.

If you’re a Kwik Fit insurance Services customer who pays for their car insurance policy by an instalment plan or debit/credit card, then your policy is arranged to automatically renew unless you’ve asked us not to renew it.

Forgotten your car insurance renewal date? – We’ll remind you

In most cases these are annual, and so will run out one year from the day we receive payment for your policy and confirm that cover has begun.

If you don’t pay via an instalment plan, credit or debit card, then it’s important to remember the length of your car insurance policy.

We like making things easier for our customers, so don't worry if you have forgotten your renewal date because we will always remind you when your renewal is due.

If you are not on the automatic-renewal process the letter will prompt you to call in.

We’ll also let you know what the new premium will be so you are fully aware.

What if I have to make changes to my policy or details?

If any of your personal details have changed, your insured vehicle has changed or you wish to make any changes to your policy then you must let Kwik Fit Insurance Services know in advance.

Just give us a call, email, or write to us ahead of your renewal date and we’ll issue a new quote to reflect the changes.

Optional car insurance extras

When it’s time to renew your car insurance it’s also a great time to consider whether you want to add anything to your policy.
