However, Canstars survey showed a different picture. It was the drivers in their early fifties that recorded the most number of claims, closely followed by drivers in their early thirties.
It?s not an unreasonable theory to propose the two could be linked – that is, the high number of older drivers claiming after an accident, compared to the lower number of under 24s. It may well mean that Mum or Dad’s policy is being used in the claims processs and this may be skewing the true result slightly in this age group.
