What our customers say about Apricot Insurance

Car insurance for nurses

Everyone who owns and drives a car is duty bound, by law, to take out car insurance. However, the cost of this insurance cover will be affected by a number of factors, including your occupation and the risks associated with that particular type of employment.

Driving insurance for nurses takes into account the specific professional profiles of those who are tasked to look after the nation’s health and will offer the opportunity to uncover some really competitive options.

What is car insurance?

Car insurance exists to protect you, and your car, from costs incurred from being involved in a road traffic accident, whether the fault is yours or a third party. The type of car insurance purchased will vary according to the extent of the cover you deem necessary for your circumstances.

Do I need car insurance?

It is a statutory legal offence to drive a car in the United Kingdom without any insurance cover. There are no exemptions from needing car insurance, whatever your age, where you live or what you do for a living. Whether you are a prince, pauper, or nurse, car insurance is a must.

I work as a nurse, how will this affect my car insurance?

When seeking car insurance cover, you will have to declare your profession along with a number of other factors like your age, driving history and no claims bonus details. Many insurance providers offer policies to both doctors and nurses, which can reduce the premium in comparison to those from a different profession. It is our privilege here at Apricot to highlight these opportunities and guide our customers to the most cost effective solution for their driving insurance needs.

Being a nurse may be one of the most challenging of professions, but at least there can be some real benefits when it comes to insuring your car.

Is driving insurance for nurses cheaper than other policies?

Car insurance is calculated by insurance providers assessing national data about car accidents and convictions and applying this to every individual applying for cover. Premiums are then assessed on the risk associated with individuals on a number of variables, including age, gender and profession.

The length of time someone has been driving and endorsements on their licence will also be considered as well as the area in which they live.

Nurses and other NHS staff benefit from much lower premiums than those in the construction or hospitality sectors, putting them on a par with other professionals like teachers and police officers, because they rank so well on this national statistical database.

Under assessed complicated criteria, nurses are not only less likely to have motor accidents, but also less likely to carry motor convictions which also ensures that any car insurance cover will be more reasonable.

Exploring specific car insurance for nurses is a very worthwhile endeavour, and Apricot can guide you through the process in an easy and accessible manner.
