I'm a named driver on my mum's policy - will a no fault accident in my own car affect her premium?

I renewed and paid for my mother's car insurance policy about two weeks before the start date. I'm a named driver on the policy but rarely drive the car. Between paying for the policy and it starting, I had a no fault accident. Should I now ring up the insurer to advise or is it irrelevant since the policy was set up and paid for even though not started?

Always declare everything as a rule. Never ever provide the insurer with the opportunity to not fulfil their contract. Make them aware the incident is not your fault though. Should your mum's premium go up as a result make sure you claim this from the at fault party.
