BIBA reminder on Continuous Insurance Enforcement

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

Details of the new measures will be distributed with all V11 tax renewal forms from March, although guidance and a video are already available at direct.gov.uk.

BIBA’s head of corporate affairs, Graeme Trudgill, says: “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.”

The MIB’s head of motor insurance database services, Neil Drane, adds: “The change in law is a stepping up of enforcement activity, so that not only those vehicles driven without insurance will be caught.”
