Warning! You now NEED car insurance even when not driving
You'll be fined if cover lapses
You've always needed cover to drive, but the new Continuous Insurance Enforcement regime means from 20 June, if you've an uninsured car, van, motorbike or motor home, you're breaking the law whether you drive it or not.
You can be fined or have your car destroyed. Even if you let cover lapse during holidays or hospital stays you'll be breaking the law.
There's a £100 fine followed by clamping, seizure or it being DESTROYED, though warning letters come first.
Avoid it with a Sorn. Those with a valid Statutory Off-Road Notice who keep their motor off-road (garage or driveway - not roadside or grass verges) don't need cover
