    Hi all, looking for some advice,I've just acquired a criminal conviction and now my insurance company won't let me have a classic car insurance policy.A normal private insurance policy has seen the quote jump from £300 to nearly £800.Now for a car that only does a thousand miles per year that just not worth the expense,anyone else had this kind of treatment and where's best to go for the cover? Thanks :-(

    What was the offence?

    If for example it was for a fraudulent insurance claim, or anything involving money and dishonesty, then that's probably cheap.

    If on the other hand it was littering, then they're extracting the proverbial.
