You should always disclose any driving convictions that you have on your record when you are looking for car insurance. Car insurance providers will likely be able to find out about any driving convictions you have, so you should be honest when asked.
What happens if you don’t declare driving convictions on insurance?
If you fail to declare driving convictions, most insurance companies will be able to find out and it may invalidate your contract and result in your insurance being cancelled. You must disclose all information an insurer asks for to avoid any issues further down the line. Your insurer has the right to cancel your insurance at any time, especially if you not disclosed driving or criminal convictions.
