Once you've found the right insurance provider for your vehicle, the next thing you have to work on is to make sure you are qualified to take advantage of the insurance policy. Here are some things you have to understand about street rod insurance requirements.
Proof of ownership of a second vehicle
Because vintage cars are rare cars that are more prone to breakdown and car problems than standard vehicles, many insurance companies won't insure classic cars which are used for daily transportation. You must have another vehicle you use for everyday driving.
Your Age and Driving Records
While there are companies who qualify drivers younger than 25 years old, most hot rod insurance companies require the owner or driver of the classic car to be at least 26 years old. You must also have a clean driving record. A record with more than 1 driving violation may not be qualified for insurance.
If you want to get lower insurance premiums and qualify for insurance easily, you have to take care of your driving record and must try your best to always follow traffic rules. Having a clean record will indicate the kind of driver you are. Insurance companies will never hesitate to insure responsible drivers but will always have second thoughts of insuring drivers with a bad record.
