Car Insurance Drops Thanks to Driving Licenses Going Online
August 8th, 2014
Car insurance fees look set to take a dive, as the Driving and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) plans to make all driving licence records available online.
The DVLA, which is responsible for the issuing of driving licenses and monitoring of drivers and driving instructors, has decided to make all driving licence information available for public use to encourage driver transparency and safety on the road.
It will be created by the MyLicence initiative, part of a government pledge that is aiming to transfer services online in a bid to cut costs. By Autumn 2014, the database will be available to all care insurers so they can offer more accurate prices for insurance and take all risks into account.
Currently, insurers have to generate insurance costs based on estimates and information supplied by drivers. However, because drivers can make mistakes or be untruthful about their driving history, providers are forced to make premiums higher in order to compensate for these price in risk factors.
With the arrival of MyLicence, insurers will instead be able to make more accurate decisions on the price of car insurance for individual drivers. It is expected that the scheme could help car insurance premiums drop by £15 for many motorists.
According to the comparison site GoCompare, the MyLicence initiative will work by asking drivers to provide their driving licence numbers (DLN) when applying for insurance for their vehicle. Insurers will then be able to use these DLNs to access the necessary driving records, such as driving points, entitlement to drive, speeding endorsements and the type of licence held.
This will help providers process a more accurate car insurance cost.
The MyLicence scheme is also predicted to make obtaining quotes quicker for drivers, as insurers will no longer need to ask as many detailed questions during the registration process. It is also expected to greatly reduce the number of mistakes or anomalies made.
As well as setting up the MyLicence database, the government also plans to transfer the paper driving licences to digital, phasing out its paper counterpart by the end of 2015. Plans for an assissted service to help those less tech-savvy get familiar with the internet are also in the pipeline.
The growing trend on online services as demonstrated by government reflects the increase in car insurance companies who choose to operate solely online.
These include companies like Quote Me Happy and Ecar, which cut the costs of call centres by offering clients a simplified, online car insurance service.
