The True Extent of Fronting

One in 10 parents would commit fraud by insuring their child's car on a policy in their own name according to a survey by GoCompare.

Insuring a vehicle in the name of someone who is not the main driver is a practice known as 'fronting' - and is typically done by parents to make their children's premiums more affordable. However, it is illegal, could invalidate the insurance policy and may even lead to a criminal record. 

GoCompare head of motor insurance, Scott Kelly, said: 'We can't stress enough the importance of telling insurers the truth when setting up a policy as any deviation from the facts may result in any future claims being refused.'
