12 months free RAC roadside and 10 mile recovery

First post here so hopefully it'll be useful to some people.

RAC are offering free cover for people who 'learnt to drive with BSM'

- Call 0800 056 2481 from a household phone, listen to the options, select option 2
- Say "Ive got a letter in the post regarding free cover cos i learnt with BSM"
- They'll ask you for a reference code... Reference: BS4001

They won't come out to you if you're at home and you're limited to a 10 mile tow but you can upgrade these if you want to, £24 for unlimited mileage tow and £25 for home start. If you just want the standard roadside and recovery with a limited 10 mile tow, it's free!

i've done it with no problems, so have about 50 people off another forum i use. they don't ask for any proof, just the reference number. they ask for a few other details like car registration number, address etc.

Just saw this, will be phoning them first thing!

mine was successful!

they ask - when you passed your test and which local BSM centre did you pass at, that's all! the rest is formalities!

i think it depends which operator you speak to. they didn't ask me anything like that

Gonna try this in the morning.

My daughter did pass her test last week (not with BSM) & she could do with some breakdown cover

Will let you know how i get on

Will add Lots of Heat & Rep if it goes ok

How long ago did you say? I didn't know whether to say long ago or not.

*Goes off to find out nearest BSM centre*

Just phoned and pressed 'option 1' because 'option 2' dept are closed today.

Worked fine and they didn't ask me anything more than the reference number.

It is me who is registered, not just my car.

Still considering whether I should pay the £24 for nationwide recovery, but hey I didn't have anything before!

Rep left, thanks!

Will give it a try

Wow, fab deal. Don't need it myself, but HOT!

i said one year

you know BSM is part of the RAC I would personally worry about them catching up with you. You are after all getting a lot for free here!
Also anyone reckon they might get a little suspicious by the sudden jump in numbers?

Worked for me, only asked for the reference code GREAT STUFF!

Worked for me as well, as I saw this on MSE.

I'll wait to see if a card comes now.

Just sorted this now, lovely find!

great 1st post

technically speaking by doing this you are committing a crime under the fraud act 2006 by making a false representation.....

maybe!!!!!!! and the government has never committed any crimes at all lol,,,,,,,,,,,,,,they just issue laws to make them legal!!!!!!!!!!!

thanks heat and rep

Yeah but they know how to get away with the crimes they commit - how are you gonna get away with this? (assuming they do catch on and decide to prosecute those who abuse it)

Who exactly is "them"?

I'm just a regular bloke who can see that this is potentially illegal.

If RAC/BMS did decide to investigate the jump in numbers of people taking this offer out (eg. when more people sign up for this than the number of letters sent out by BSM) they will investigate and it could end up getting people in trouble with the law but also could render the policies void - something you may not find out until you're stuck in the middle of nowhere and actually need to use the RAC.

I just think that offers like this are meant for the people they were offered to and when loads of people take advantage of the offer when they are not supposed to it spoils it for the people who have a legitimate claim to it.

Has anyone ever told you that you come across as very paranoid? lol

Hmm, though i need RAC cover think this one is a dodgy one as people who havent passed with BSM are indeed lying.

I'm guessing they will check the spike in numbers (work in retail and its standard practice to identify anomolies) and then just cross reference the names (we've done this before - and its an easy job).

Names that match are cool, those that dont will prob have their policies cancelled.

Just my 2p.

I just tried to call them, and indeed lie, and they were having none of it. They are now asking for a BSM reference number which you should have if you did actually learn with them.

So I think this has expired!!

I've just sorted mine out, they will ask for a driver/customer reference from BSM when you apply, aswell
as the reference and they will call BSM to check (although its the same call centre!).
They have obviously wised up.
Thanks Hank Great Spot!

Forgot to mention I phoned BSM and they said you needed to of booked a 10hour block of lessons
to qualify
