    This wouldn't be fronting, it would be good old fashioned fraud.

    You'd probably be found out before the inception of the cover, because a lot of companies reserve the right to check driver details with the DVLA.

    If you were found out following an incident, you would not only be done for driving without insurance, but also could be liable to fraud charges. Although it might seem like the benefit outweighs the risk at the moment (which it doesn't), you'll feel very stupid in a few years time when the price has come down, and you're having to keep defrauding them and effectively driving without cover simply to avoid being found out retrospectively.

    lol!! i remember when my dad called the insurance company on behalf of me because i am hearing impaired.. they asked my dad all my personal details, after the while doing the computer input and checks they said i can see 'he just passed recently' - my dad didnt even mentioned how long i was driving so they got everything on the computer i believe so it is impossible to cheat with insurance company.. i would advise you not to think about doing it..

    This.
    They also wont pay a penny in the event of an accident if they find out your lying and the insurance is invalid.
    Lying to them would be stupid anyway.

    then your insurance would be void if when you have a crash, meaning that you will nto get any money from the crash (regardless of who is at fault), and you would have to cover the cost of the 3rd party.
    you will also then get charged with driving withought insurance, which i do belive is a ban.

    in short, dont do it, tis a silly idea.

    Well this is the guy that supposedly lost his license yesterday for driving around uninsured, and now that he's banned, we can safely assume it's another troll.
