Gillian asked:

My car insurance expired a year ago. I didn’t renew it as I had a company car. I now have my own car again and need proof of my no claims. However, I can’t remember which company I was insured with and can’t find the old insurance certificate!

    Look at you payment records. If you pay by check, go thru them to find the Company. Good luck.

    Do you still have your check register from your checking account. Check to see who you wrote the check to if you kept it.

    If you did not pay by cash get a copy of an old bank statement from your bank you may have to pay a small fee for this.

    There are a number of things you can do to find your car insurance coverage history & claim history:

    * Look through old bank statements / credit card statements. Because there’s usually a company name in the description line for your payments, you can probably find out which auto insurance company covered you at that time.
    * Contact your local DMV – your DMV may be able to tell you about your previous insurer, but with no claims… maybe not. Here’s a site that lists direct links to US DMV websites:
    * Get a CLUE Report – a report from this site will outline your claim history for vehicles / property for your future insurer. If the other options fail, this would be the way to go. You can find out more information here: though, I’m really unfamiliar with it.

    The last may be more what you’re looking for, but checking bank statements and credit card statements may be faster and cheaper.

    No way to do that.
    As you have not been continuously insured many 9insurers will not carry on your NCB anyway

    Also ask your employer for a letter confirming that you had a company car for a year and were claim free (if you were!!) – that year counts too!
