    Exclamation DVLA reminds motorists of new motor insurance law!

    The DVLA in conjunction with the Motor Insurers' Bureau (MIB) and the British Insurance Brokers Association (BIBA) are reminding drivers that a new law to be rolled out in late Spring will mean that they must keep their vehicle insured unless they have notified the DVLA that is it is being kept off the road.

    Information about the new law is being distributed with all V11 tax renewal forms from March in addition to the guidance and video available now on Directgov.

    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.

    “It is vitally important that motorists understand the change and how it will impact on them. That is why we have added new information to Directgov which offers clear advice to help motorists understand the new rules.”

    Neil Drane, MIB’s head of motor insurance database services said:

    “The change in law is a stepping up of enforcement activity, so that not only those vehicles driven without insurance will be caught. Now the registered keeper must make sure that their vehicle is insured all the time. And if it is, then they need not be concerned. The DVLA and MID will be systematically checked, so that the levels of uninsured driving are reduced even further.”

    Graeme Trudgill, BIBA’s head of corporate affairs said:

    “Continuous Insurance Enforcement will help reduce the 500 million burden on innocent motorists caused by uninsured drivers, vehicle keepers should ensure they stay insured or SORN their vehicle if it is laid up, vehicle keepers can always check at askmid.com or speak to their insurance broker or company if they have any doubt.”

    Relatively few?

    5%+ of all motorists are uninsured - if you live in a city or spend a lot of time on motorways that's hundreds, every day, passing right before your eyes!
    Very funny, Scotty. Now beam down my clothes.

    I wonder if we'll all experience a 30 reduction in our premiums when the 'uninsured drivers' are coughing up the cash?
