Working out your annual mileage

Updated on: 10 December 2020

a car's dashboard shows it's current mileage

Do you know how many miles you’re driving per year? Now it’s easier to get it spot-on using the annual mileage table from Direct Line. Track the miles you’re covering on a typical day or week and then check the table below to find the approximate annual figure.

Another option is to use the mileage recorded on your car between MOTs as a guide. When calculating the miles you’re doing within a year always try to be accurate. Underestimating your annual mileage could invalidate your policy.

If you drive more than 50,000 miles per year then you should contact us.
