Can I Drive My Own Car Under a Road Risk Insurance Policy?

Road risk insurance is a vital form of motor trade cover that nearly every type of motor trade business requires.

Road risk insurance will enable you and your staff to work on customer vehicles as well as transporting them as needed. But can you cover your own car under a road risk insurance policy? The answer is yes.

In addition to road risk insurance, there are other types of cover that motor trade businesses can benefit from. Read on to find out what these are as well as some great ways to save money on motor trade insurance.

Additional types of motor trade insurance

  • Liability claims - Liability claims can be filed against your business for a number of reasons, either from customers, members of the public or your own employees. You can get cover for all types of liability claims included in your motor trade policy. Bear in mind that if you have employees then you’re legally obliged to get employers’ liability insurance.
  • Legal fees – If you want an added level of protection then you can also get legal fees included in your policy. This will ensure that you would be able to pay for the legal costs associated with fighting a liability claim.
  • Combined motor trade insurance – A combined motor trade insurance policy provides a way for you to protect every aspect of your business, from vehicles to your premises, stock, tools etc.
