According to Bucke, insurers have noticed that drivers who give their driver’s license number are reliable and claim less, so they “immediately” discount their premium because they are considered lower risk.

It is important to ensure that all information provided is absolutely accurate to avoid having to pay a fee.
Mr Bucke said: “Claims, accidents, even if it wasn’t your fault, make sure it’s stated. Insurers have access to the data to confirm and verify what you say. If you forget something, your fee will be charged more than if you had actually mentioned it in the first place.
“Some insurers won’t even quote if your data doesn’t match the data they can access, while others will charge 25 to 50 percent more if you forget or, worse, save with the truth.”
While online comparison sites, known as aggregators, may seem time-saving, they may not always provide the best deal.
