    Hi all,

    Can completing a Driver Awareness course increase your insurance premium? Do you have to declare it, if you completed one, to insurance providers when trying to renew your car insurance?

    Thank you!

    Yes, it can - a lot of insurance providers ask have you been on any driver awareness courses in the last 3/5 years. Not all insurers will ask, but if asked, you are required to not lie about it (you have still broken the road traffic act, so they have a right to ask). If asked, yes, it will increase your premium.

    Check the T&Cs of your insurance, as you might be required to notify your insurance company straight away (or within n days of going on the course) if you go on a driver awareness course. If it says this in the T&Cs, failing to do so will result in your insurance being invalid.

    You do not have to declare it unless they ask. Admiral definitely load premiums for attending. I am not aware of others.
