Uninsured vehicle offence
Measures to make it an offence to keep an uninsured vehicle have been approved by the Road Safety Minister
It will soon be an offence to keep a car uninsured, whether it is used on the road or not. The new system will be a joint partnership between the DVLA and the insurance industry and will involve sending motorist’s letters informing them that their vehicle is uninsured and giving them a period of time in which to get it insured. If the owner of the vehicle fails to insure it a £100 fine will be given and if after the fine it is still uninsured the vehicle may be destroyed.
