    I passed my driving test 6th July 2012. I had a big car crash and the car was a wrote off. It was just me involved so I didn't claim against it.

    I'm looking at getting a new car in the summer and on the insurance when it asks for no claims, do I put 1 or 0 as I haven't drove for nearly 6 months...
    Bit confused.

    Thanks!

    You only get one years no claims if you've been insured for one year.

    ^This, although an 'annual' motor insurance policy may actually be 9,10 or 11 months as well, which would also give you a full years no claims bonus.

    If you have had car insurance for a year, then you will have 1 years no claims.
    So, if you still have the car insurance running on the old car (i.e. you didnt cancel the car insurance after you crashed your car) then when the policy is up, you will have a years no claims. And the insurance company will send you a certificate saying that when they send you a renewal quote through.
