Motorists reminded about vehicle insurance
Individuals looking for touring caravan insurance may want to take note of a new law that will be introduced in late spring.
The British Insurance Brokers’ Association (Biba), Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) and Motor Insurer’s Bureau have reminded individuals that all roadworthy vehicles will have to be insured otherwise they may face prosecution.
It is expected that the new regulations will help to catch out people failing to take out policies and reduce the costs inflicted on innocent motorists as a result.
David Evans, DVLA’s corporate affairs director, said: “We know that uninsured drivers are a menace on our roads and add around £30 to honest motorists’ premiums.”
Vehicles that have been declared off the road will be exempt from the law providing the DVLA has been informed.
The Department for Transport estimates there are two million drivers travelling the country’s streets without insurance.
People who ignore official reminders about taking out cover could risk having their vehicle seized and destroyed.
