Drivers warned as changes introduced to car insurance

Drivers in the UK are being warned about changes to car insurance which are due to come into force in spring of this year. The DVLA and Motor Insurer’s Bureau have been distributing leaflets with information regarding the change to car insurance rules with the V11 renewal tax forms and online at the The new legislation will make it illegal for any car owner to not have car insurance, unless the car has been registered as off the road with the DVLA. The new rules have been introduced as part of the government’s plan to clamp down on uninsured drivers. On average it’s been estimated that £30 on the insurance policy of every driver is there to cover the costs of uninsured drivers on UK roads. The MIB and DVLA have described the new rules as stepping up in the enforcement on uninsured drivers. It is hoped the new guidelines will encourage car owners to keep their vehicles registered with the authorities at all times so they can keep track of who is insured, and who isn’t, making it easier to uncover drivers who are not abiding by the rules. The authorities are planning to monitor the situation closely following the introduction of the new guidelines to see if this has a positive impact on the number of uninsured drivers on UK roads.
