Top 10 Motoring Convictions for 2018
Admiral Insurance recently carried out a survey of it’s customer base and analysed the most common type of motoring conviction. The survey was carried out on drivers who notified them of a conviction between September 2017 and August 2018.

As part of the survey, Admiral also looked at other elements such as who was likely to have what type of conviction based on age and occupation.
