Driving Convictions

What If I Have Points On My Licence

When it comes to hiring a car with points on your license most companies ask for you to have a fully clean license. Here at Indigo we can hire to those with driving convictions and points on their license. This depends on the amount of points on your license and what they were for. For more information please see below.

What is the maximum amount of points I can have to hire a vehicle?

Here at Indigo we are able to accept drivers with a maximum of 6 (some suppliers allow 9 points, call us to find out) points on their license. This of course depends on what your points were for and the seriousness of the offence. To find out if you are able to hire a vehicle with points on your license talk to one of our agents today.

Does it matter what the points are for?

When giving people a quote we always ask whether you have any points or convictions and if so what they were for. With some convictions such as speeding convictions you can generally hire a vehicle depending upon how many points you currently have on your license. If you have a serious conviction such as an IN10 or DR10 then you must wait at least 5 years from the date you got your license back before you can hire a vehicle. If you do have any points or convictions on your license then please speak to Indigo directly to find out the options.

I’m under 25, do I need a clean license?

If you are under the age of 25 and have points and convictions on your license the often most suppliers will turn you away. Speak to Indigo directly if this is the case as we can occasionally assist those under 25 with points on their license, depending upon what the points were for and the seriousness of the conviction.

I have a previous conviction can I hire a car?

If you have a previous conviction and need to hire a vehicle then speak with Indigo directly, as this depends upon the conviction code, the date of the conviction and whether you received any bans for this offence.

What endorsements are not accepted?

The main endorsements that are not accepted if you are wanting to hire a vehicle are insurance convictions, careless driving and drink driving offences. If you do have any of these convictions on your license whether old or new, then speak to one of our agents to find out whether you are able to hire a vehicle.

What endorsements are accepted?

Depending upon how many points you received for the offence, we can generally accept minor offences such as speeding offences and traffic offences. If you have any offences on your license we advise you to contact us directly to find out the options available to you.

I have a drink driving conviction, can I hire a car?

If you have a drink driving offence then you may not be able to hire a vehicle. This depends on how long ago the conviction was and whether you were banned because of this. If you do have this offence on your license then speak to us directly.

I have an insurance conviction, can I hire a car?

Yes, starting from this year, Indigo Car Hire can provide you a car hire if you have a IN10 conviction. More details about this type of conviction can be found here. If you do have this conviction on your license please contact us directly to arrange a car rental for you..

I have just got my license back due to having a conviction, can I hire a vehicle?

This depends on what the conviction was, as if it was a serious conviction such as a drink driving offence or insurance offence, then you must wait at least 5 years from the date you got your license back before you can hire a vehicle. If the ban was due to another conviction such as a tt99 then generally you must wait at least 2 years from the date you got your license back before you can hire a vehicle. If you have been banned for a previous conviction and are unsure as to whether you can hire a vehicle, then please contact us directly to see if you are able to hire a vehicle.
