Dawes Specialist Motor Insurer

Special Vehicles

content image

We understand that there are a myriad of custom built and highly modified vehicles for which getting insurance is not easy. Not the case with Dawes. Our cover extends to Kit Cars, Classics, Hot Rods, Street Machines and high performance imports.

In fact, we have been known to arrange cover for the odd ex-army personnel carrier as well as stretch limousines (including hummers), dual control driving instructor vehicles, film set vehicles (excluding stunt cars), race cars off track and many others.

Dawes is flexible. We understand that some cars are as unique as the people who drive them, so we assess each situation on its own merits.

Trouble getting insurance?

Dawes is happy to consider most "troubled prestige drivers" (licensed drivers with prior DUIs or who have lost their license in the past due to accumulating too many points).

Multiple vehicle policies

Your clients can have more than one vehicle on a policy. We understand how hard it is to stop at just one special car.

DID YOU KNOW that our comprehensive motor vehicle insurance policies come with*:
