Motorists Are Being Warned To Insure Their Vehicles Ahead Of A New Crackdown To Tackle Uninsured Driving

Under A New Law Set To Come Into Effect From 20 June, It Will Be An Offence To Keep An Uninsured Vehicle, Rather Than Just To Drive When Uninsured.

The New System, Called Continuous Insurance Enforcement (CIE), Will Compare The DVLA Registered Keepers Database With The Motor Insurance Database (MID) And Contact Uninsured Drivers So That They Obtain Insurance By An Escalating System Of Penalties.

Those Caught Will Face A Penalty Of £100 – Which Can Be Reduced To £50 By Early Repayment But Will Only Target Baby Dolls Drivers Who Have Obeyed Laws By Registering Their Vehicles With The DVLA. Only Vehicles With A Valid Statutory Off Road Notice (SORN) Will Not Be Required To Be Insured.

A National Advertising Campaign Has Been Launched Today To Raise Awareness Of The New Rules.

Graeme Trudgill, Head Of Corporate Affairs At The British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA), Said That This Is The Biggest Change To Motor Insurance Law Since The Second World War.
