Penalties for vehicles without motor insurance
From early 2011 a new scheme is being introduced to make sure that all vehicles stay insured or a Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN) is made. The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) and the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) are working together to reduce the number of uninsured drivers.
The fight against uninsured vehicles
Latest public estimates are that around 1.5 million of all UK motorists drive uninsured. These drivers cost the UK about £500 million annually, which adds up to an average cost of an extra £30 per car insurance policy.
The police already seize about 500 uninsured vehicles every day. To help combat uninsured driving even further, when the new law is introduced it will result in:
clamping of uninsured vehicles that have not declared Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN)
Records held by DVLA will be compared with those on the Motor Insurance Database (MID).
From early 2011, if it appears from the database comparison that a vehicle has no insurance or no SORN, a letter will be sent to the registered keeper.
If the keeper takes no action, the keeper faces:
a fixed penalty fine of £100
court prosecution and be fined up to £1,000
having the vehicle clamped, seized and destroyed
What to do as a vehicle keeper
If you are not insured and use your vehicle on the road you are already committing an offence – get insured immediately.
If you are keeping your vehicle off the road, make sure that you have submitted a SORN declaration to DVLA. If the vehicle is taxed you need to return the disc (including nil value discs) to DVLA using a V14 form. You can make a SORN declaration at the same time as returning the disc on the V14.
