To Whom It May Concern:
RE: Request for non-standard Proof of No Claims Letter
My name is XXX, and between January 2002 and May 2003, I held a Motor Insurance
Policy with your organisation. I am writing to you today to ask if you can provide me
with a non-standard Proof of No Claims Letter. The reason for this is that I have recently
emigrated to Vancouver, Canada, and in order for me transfer my No Claims Bonus to a
Canadian insurer, a letter whose contents is different to a standard British Proof of No
Claims Letter is required.
This non-standard letter, printed on paper containing your company letterhead, must
include the following pieces of information:
1. The Policy Number I held with you.
2. The date my Motor Insurance Policy with you commenced.
3. The date my Motor Insurance Policy with you ended.
4. A sentence describing the type of insurance held – i.e. “fully comprehensive”.
5. A sentence explaining that I made no claims during this time.
6. A sentence describing the total number of years‟ No Claims Bonus I had gained
by the time my policy ended – e.g. “At the time of cancellation, Mr McNab was
entitled to a 71% No Claims Discount representing 6 years claim free driving.”
Please note that the number of years accrued must be stated, and not just a No
Claims percentage bonus.
7. A sentence describing the number of years‟ No Claims Bonus I accrued with
your organisation alone during this period – e.g. “Mr XXX accrued 2 years of No
Claims Discount whilst insured with us.”
I believe that the following information may be useful in helping to identify me in your

<Your full Canadian address – when speaking to insurers, be sure that they are aware that
Vancouver is in Canada, and that there are indeed other countries on this planet other
than Great Britain!!>
Please do not send any correspondence to my old UK address, and please remember that
Canada is outside of the UK, and as such, the letter will most likely need an „Airmail‟
sticker. I say this because your company has already failed twice to send other letters I
I realise that I am asking a lot of you, so I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to
you and your organisation for doing this. Providing this letter will allow me to overcome
a major hurdle in my new life.
Please find a sample letter overleaf.
