You will receive a DR60 endorsement if you fail to provide specimen for analysis in circumstances other than driving or attempting to drive. This can make it difficult to obtain affordable car insurance.
Here at Peart Performance Marque, we specialise in providing DR60 car insurance for those with a conviction. With access to a large panel of specialist insurers, we guarantee to find you affordable insurance.
What is a DR60 Conviction?
A DR60 conviction is issued when you fail to provide a specimen for analysis in circumstances other than driving or attempting to drive. An example of this is if you were in charge of a vehicle and you refuse to provide specimen when requested. A specimen can be breath, blood or urine.
This endorsement will remain on your license for 4 years from the date of the offence, or from the date of when a disqualification is imposed. Moreover, you will receive 10 points on your license. A DR60 endorsement carries a maximum fine of £2,500, a community order or a three-month prison sentence.
There are only certain circumstances* where it is acceptable not to provide a specimen:
- A medical condition such as a respiratory issue that would impact your ability to provide a sample.
- A mental health condition such as panic or anxiety.
- A genuine phobia of needles, if a blood sample is requested.
*The following examples would have to be supported by medical evidence.
