Uninsured drivers face tighter laws

13.22 | 18 September 2009 |

Plans to tighten the law on driving without insurance, making it an offence to be the registered keeper of an uninsured vehicle regardless of whether it is being used, were reported in The Times last week.

Currently it is only an offence to drive without insurance, but under a scheme announced in January drivers must ensure that their cars are covered at all times unless they are unused and kept off the road, in which case they must register them as such to the DVLA.

Failure to comply could result in a £1,000 fine and the seizure of the car.
