Continuous insurance enforcement

As part of the Continuous Enforcement Legislation, it is an offence to be the keeper of a vehicle without insurance unless you have notified the DVLA that your vehicle is being kept off the road using a statutory off road notice (SORN).

Under the CIE scheme the DVLA work to continuously identify uninsured vehicles by systemativally comparing DVLA vehicle records against those held on the Motor Insurance Database.

The registered keeper of a vehicle that appears to be uninsured will be sent an Insurance Advisory Letter. This letter will advise them their vehicle appears to be uninsured and unless they take action they will receive a penalty from the DVLA. If after receiving an insurance advisory letter, a registered keeper fails to comply with the advice set out in the letter they will face:

• A fixed penalty notice of £100

• Their vehicle being clamped, SEIZED and disposed of

• A court prosecution and a maximum fine of £1000

CIE measures are in addition to the powers the police already have to seize an uninsured vehicle being used on the road.
