Stupid insurance question. The Range is on a classic limited miles policy. I've used it far too much and will run out of miles before the policy ends. I cannot extend the mileage as it's on the max they'll do for it. With two months still to go can I just get a new policy and leave the old one in place ( afaik it will not be insured as I'll have gone over the mileage limit) or do I get arse raped and pay the cancellation?

 

I've been told before it's unlawful to double insure, what about disconnecting the speedo and using GPS, or Johnny Hates Jazz the knacker.


Festering scum of the earth, yer motoring public.

Shirley if it has gone over it's annual mileage then that insurance is no longer valid so it is not insured so it will   not be insured twice ?

As far as I know, exceeding the mileage limit of a classic policy does not render it invalid - it just reduces your cover to third party only.

 

The policy documents should tell you if this is the case for your policy or not.

If you were to drive an oldish car (>40yrs) home, that hasn't done many miles for a good number of years but recent MOT, on a 30 mile journey. Would you choose the motorway, which has plenty of hard shoulders or A-roads? Motorway is quicker, but very busy and some sections very dangerous to breakdown. A-roads slower to get back, but plenty of "safe" places to stop but still some dangerous.

Also continued motorway speeds likely to be harder on a car than one driven on a mix of 60, 50 and 30mph roads?


30 miles? You could probably freewheel that short of a distance if need be.

Cowboy up.
A roads.
Lead foot.
Enjoy.

That's how all the classic insurance I had worked.

Possibly true but we're denied the pleasure of telling it so!
