I'm fairly certain if you don't use it for 2 years it is lost.

I also think it's two years.

Why not alternate the insurance for your partner's car, one year in your name with them as named driver - the next in their name with you as named driver. As long as you correctly declare which of you is the main driver you'll both be able to maintain your NCB.

As rupert suggests if 2 people are insuring one car it's best to alternate year to year to keep both no claims discounts going.

I recall mention of 2 years as well. Some years ago I was mightily peeved to find that NCB earned in Abu Dhabi was not recognised! To get a year claim free is really difficult! I passed an accident in which 6 people had been killed n a collision at an X roads controlled by traffic lights. Back to the thread - 2 years I think

i'll have it in use before 2 years is up no probs

if i did try to insure the partners car , would it cost extra when i say im not the reg owner etc?

If you were simply sharing a car with a mate it would be so easy, perhaps not possible, but registration details have never caused problems for my wife and I.

I'm unsure whether "partner" status is viewed differently to "married" in car insurance terms.

I was in this situation some years ago and 're-cycled' the insurance after two years as the broker told me otherwise I would lose the NCB. The extra premium at that time (circa 10 years ago) was +10% for wife and +25% any other status - subect to age, experience, etc.

Up to 3 years ago LV kept the NCB 'open' for four years. My wife bought a new car in Jan this year after a break of three years and they provided proof of 4 years NCB.

Usually two years
