There's really good news for many of the members we've previously had to turn down - we've kept on the case with insurers and have been able to negotiate a relaxation of the age & experience criteria for the club scheme.

These are the changes from the old requirements where we had them on certain models:

OLD RULES - 25+ with 12 months' experience of the car or one of similar performance.
NEW RULES - 25+ with 6 months' experience.

OLD RULES - 25+ with 24 months' experience or 30+ if only 12 months' experience.
NEW RULES - 25+ with 12 months' experience.

OLD RULES - 30+ with 12 months' experience.
NEW RULES - 28+ with 12 months' experience.

There's still some way to go but it's good that we at least have these concessions.

Remember to include us in the mix when looking around for quotes. We're still signing up 40% of quotes offered - there won't be many in the industry that can say that.

To find out how much you could save with Chris Knott please call FREE on 0800 917 2274 (or 01424 200477 - cheaper for mobiles) and quote this forum's unique code.

That's gonna fall into the new 28+ category I'm afraid.

How come you are so far behind other insurers in terms of quoting younger people with higher performance cars? I have just renewed my insurance with another insurer but did try yourselves in the renewel process, shame you werent able to insure myself being 26yrs old 6 yrs ncb and driving similar power cars for 4 plus years.  As the customer service was great, polite and generally really helpful. hopefully things keep improving and will try yourselves again one year.

As I said on another forum recently, the criteria keeps the account in profit by excluding the stuff that doesn't make money or rather is costly in terms of likelihood to claim or cause claims.

Of course, we'd love to sign up every quote but if any one provider could do that they'd insure the whole driving population wouldn't they? Everyone's looking for their own type of business and this is ours.

If you fit, please call us. If you don't then we'll politely decline to quote.

Chris Knotts can quote you even younger
Further to the above, we have some more good news for members - we now have a provider on board that will quote at lower driver ages.

For young drivers we can now offer cover at age 19 for Comprehensive on most non-performance models and smaller/older hot-hatches. You must have held a full licence for 12 months and have at least one year's NCB.

This new facility also means that we can now quote S & RS models for drivers aged 25. The provider is also adopting the experience requirement we have in place so you'll need to have 12 months' experience of the vehicle or one of similar performance. This will help us to protect the account in these early days.

Chris Knotts can quote your postcode
On the postcode side of things we can now quote SK1-12 where this was previously a no-no - insurers have agreed to open up those postcodes (though there may be parking requirements for some postcode sub-sectors).

Along with the M, L, and OL postcode relaxations we've already notified you about, we're really pleased to be able to bring you these extra positive changes.

It's great when you can see proof that we're working harder to assist more car club/forum members - in this case, removing some of the barriers to you getting a competitive quote from us if you're otherwise a safe risk.

Please pick up the phone and ask us to quote when your renewal is due.

Don't forget to mention the club code below to make sure you receive the full club scheme benefit.
