Hopefully, if you are a motorist, you will be aware that it is a legal requirement that all vehicles need to be insured to drive on our roads here in the UK unless your vehicle is declared SORN (Statutory Off Road Notification) and is kept off the public heighway. Unfortunately, there are a lot of motorists who flout the law and do not bother to arrange suitable motor insurance.
Such motorists risk being caught by the police and, if they are, could find their car is impounded and eventually scrapped. In addition, such motorists could end up being fined, getting points on their driving license, having to pay more for their motor insurance and being banned from driving for a period of time.
According to the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB), in excess of two million motorists have had their vehicles seized by the police since records first started to be kept in 2005. We are sure that you will agree this is a huge number of vehicles.
It is also concerning to read that almost one in five casualties due to road traffic accidents involve an untraced or uninsured driver. Again, this is a very high figure and is most concerning.
With today’s technology, it is not difficult to trace cars that have not been insured so it really is not worth taking the risk. If you do break the law by not insuring your motor vehicle then you will find that there are fewer insurance companies that will be prepared to provide suitable motor insurance resulting in a much higher premium being charged. We are sure you will agree, in the current economic climate, the less you have to pay to insure your motor vehicle the better.
If you do happen to have been convicted of not insuring your motor vehicle then why not get in touch with us and we will do all that we can to help you source suitable motor insurance. We look forward to hearing from you.
