Fronting is when the main driver of the car is falsely listed as a named driver on the policy. For example, in order to reduce the price of their policy, a young driver might list their parent as the policyholder and themselves as the named driver.

Fronting is in fact against the law and in the event of an accident can leave the vehicle uninsured exposing the policyholder to the possibility of having to meet the costs of a claim themselves and also potentially open to a motoring conviction.
