Vehicles: Insurance

Volume 497: debated on Thursday 22 October 2009

13. To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport what steps his Department plans to take to reduce the number of vehicles driven on public roads without valid insurance; and if he will make a statement. (294806)

Regulations are being drafted to bring into force a new scheme of continuous enforcement of motor insurance.

This scheme will identify those potentially uninsured by regularly comparing vehicle registration data on the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency’s (DVLA) database with the database of insured vehicles maintained by the Motor Insurers’ Bureau. Vehicle keepers found to be without valid insurance will be subject to enforcement action by the DVLA.
