Qualifications for Non-Standard Insurance

Drivers may fall into the high-risk category for a number of different reasons, including:

  • Driving history: If a driver has a history of accidents, traffic violations, or other issues that have resulted in insurance claims, a company will consider the driver to be risky.
  • Driver's age: Some companies consider young drivers to be inexperienced, and therefore high risk, and classify them as non-standard up to age 25.
  • SR-22 Carriers: If a driver holds an SR-22 for a DUI, reckless driving or other infraction, most carriers will consider them to be in the non-standard category.
  • Salvage Vehicle: If a client owns a vehicle with a salvage title, many insurers will deny comprehensive and/or collision coverage, resulting in a liability only policy. 
  • Non-owner car insurance: Drivers who wish to drive, but do not own a vehicle may obtain non-owner car insurance which is considered a non-standard coverage.
