Our Latest Legal Hour Questions (21/11/18)

Read your previously answered questions here
I’ve put a private plate on my car and my friend has told me I am not insured to drive if I am stopped by the police - is this true?

It would be wise to confirm with your insurance company when you intend to transfer your plate onto your vehicle. If necessary, two insurance cover notes with the old and the new plate can be produced (depending on your insurance company) to cover any overlap.

Technically, it is the car that is insured not the number plate, and therefore depending on your terms and conditions we have seen the police get this one wrong and clients have been wrongly charged with no insurance.
