Driving Offences: Insurance

Volume 485: debated on Tuesday 9 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what estimate he has made of the number of motorcycles which were being driven on the road without insurance in (a) 2006, (b) 2007 and (c) 2008. (241653)

There are no figures available for the number of motorcycles driven without insurance. Our latest estimate for uninsured driving is that in 2005 there were about 2.1 million licensed vehicles being driven uninsured (about 6.5 per cent. of the UK vehicle fleet). Information is not held by vehicle type.
