What is DG10 Insurance?
DG10 Insurance is a specific type of insurance for convicted drivers. DG Convictions relate to those caught driving whilst under the influence of drugs.
Drivers with a DG10 conviction code will still be able to insure their car normally. It is to be expected though that their policy will be more expensive.
The drug does not have to be an illegal one for you to receive a drug driver related conviction code. If you take a heavy dose of legal medication as prescribed by a doctor but then drive even though you are feeling its effects. You can still be done for drug driving and require drug driver insurance.

Drug Driving vs Drink Driving
Drink driver is more common. This is purely because drinking is legal and anyone over the age of 18 can do it. You can apply for drink drivers insurance here.
