Final regulations on CIE

The Department for Transport has outlined the finer detail of Continuous Insurance Enforcement (CIE) legislation, as laid in Parliament yesterday.

Under the new system:

The DVLA will work in partnership with the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) to identify uninsured vehicles.

Motorists will receive a letter telling them that their vehicle appears to be uninsured and warning them that they will be fined unless they take action.

If the keeper fails to insure the vehicle they will be given a £100 fine.

If the vehicle remains uninsured, regardless of whether the fine is paid, it could then be clamped, seized and destroyed.

The vehicle will only be released when the keeper provides evidence that the registered keeper is no longer committing an offence of having no insurance and the person proposing to drive the vehicle away is insured to do so.

The first advisory letters will be sent at the end of June following a publicity campaign to raise awareness of the CIE scheme.

Meanwhile, drivers can check whether their vehicle is recorded as uninsured on the MID database at www.askMID.com.

Under the new system, vehicles with a valid Statutory Off Road Notice will not need to be insured.
