The vehicles we cover


The list of European and prestige cars we can arrange cover for reads like a who’s who of high-end vehicles – everything from Alfa Romeo and Lotus, to Rolls Royce and Mercedes.


High-end and extreme performance supercars are one of our specialties. These include Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maybach and Aston Martin to name a few. Your client’s investment will be in good hands with our experienced and knowledgeable team.


We can arrange cover for all motorcycle manufacturers. The Triumph Rocket III, Honda Goldwing, Ducati 1098R, Harley Davidson Screaming Eagle Road King and the MV Agusta are just some of the more notable bikes that may be insured. We can also take care of your client’s unregistered dirt bike or quad bike, but only if it is not being used in circumstances where registration is required.

Special Vehicles

We understand that it isn’t easy to get cover for highly modified or custom-built vehicles insured, so we assess each situation on its merits. Dawes can arrange cover for kit cars, classic vehicles, hot rods and street machines and high-performance imports.

We have even arranged cover for such unique vehicles as ex-army personnel carriers, stretch limousines (including hummers), dual control driving instructor vehicles, film-set vehicles (excluding stunt cars), off-road race cars and many more.

Trouble getting insurance?

Dawes is happy to consider most “troubled prestige drivers” who may have lost their licence within the last 5 years.

Choice of repairer

You wouldn’t send your family to just any doctor – it’s the same with prestige and specialised vehicles. Your client can choose their own repairer or we can recommend a specialist repairer for them. Find out more about choosing a Repairer.
