I believe it depends on the policy your on. If you have a classic car policy then no, you don't get NCB, but then they don't take NCB into account anyway. If your on a normal policy I assume they give you NCB.

You should be able to get a letter from them confirming you have a year(s) 'claim free driving' which most other insurers will accept instead of NCB proper. Its always good to check first though, with both companies :w00t:

Just did min,21,1st car nil NCB with Liverpool Victoria,payin 540 TPFT with interior mods and bodywork/paint.

They dont like performance mods though, sosavin that for when I have some NCB

Best deal for me by about 350! Even my staff discount with thebrokerI workfor got me nowhere near.
