Right then, I actually think im losing my marbles...seriously!
I wonder if anyone can shed any light on this...
For some reason I have been under the impression in the last month or 2 that the rules had changed at the DVLA (or wherever) and youre car had to have insurance no matter what the circumstances.
I dont know why I was under this impression though
, maybe I heard it on the radio or seen it on the news or something and went away and remembered it
So, since then, Ive been conscious that when my insurance ran out today, I needed to arrange 'laid-up' insurance which ive just shelled out £101 for.
Then, Ive just read PANIC's post (below) and it got me questioning if what I thought was actually even true....... and.... I now think Ive been playing tricks on myself, again.
does it have to be insured if it is SORN on private land???
This is what I thought... but now ive done a bit of googling... I think that what I thought was a load of brollocks.
I read this page... Stay insured: new penalties for vehicles without motor insurance : Directgov - Motoring
and it clearly states that if the car is SORN'd (which mine is) then you dont need laid-up insurance.
Im fairly certain ill be ringing adrianflux up in the morning to get my god damn £101 back and hope they dont take an admin fee off me.
What a wolly!
