New Motor Insurance regs

Post by gvickery » Wed Jun 22, 2011 4:37 pm

New vehicle insurance law means that the registered keeper of a vehicle must keep it insured unless they've made a Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN).

The government, through the DVLA, are clamping down on uninsured motorists. From yesterday registered keepers identified as having an uninsured vehicle will be sent a letter telling them that their vehicle appears to be uninsured, and warning them of the consequences if they fail to take action? Those who do not act on this warning - either by taking out insurance or declaring their vehicle off the road - will receive a £100 fine and could have their car clamped, seized and destroyed.

Two important exceptions are:
•if you have made a SORN for the vehicle
•if your vehicle has been kept off-road since before SORN came into force on 31 January 1998 – unless it was brought back into use

Be best for any member who is unaware of this to read through:
