Fronting

‘Fronting’ is often used to describe a form of car insurance fraud, when someone claims to be the main driver on a car insurance policy when they are not.

Fronting often happens when a higher risk driver, such as a younger driver, is added as a named driver to a car insurance policy, when they are in fact the main driver or owner of the vehicle.

If a driver is found to be fronting they may have all or part of their insurance claim refused by their insurer, their policy may be cancelled and they could face prosecution for fraud, which can lead to a criminal record.

Additionally, they may find it difficult to get insurance again in the future.
