Fines for no insurance, even when not driving

Changes to the law regarding vehicle insurance will come into effect in spring

The amendments will make it an offence to keep a vehicle uninsured as well as driving a vehicle with no insurance. The DVLA will work with the Motor Insurers’ Bureau to identify vehicles that have no insurance, send a letter to the registered keeper asking them to insure the vehicle or face a £100 fine. Uninsured vehicles add about £30 to law abiding motorists’ premiums each year.
