Clampdown on uninsured drivers

57 vehicles seized by Devon & Cornwall Police in one week

Just short of 60 vehicles were seized by police in Devon & Cornwall between 12th-18th November 2018.

Of the 57 Vehicles, 54 were for having no valid insurance and three because the drivers did not have a valid license.

As a minimum the drivers of uninsured vehicles will receive six points on their licence and a £300 fine. There is also a minimum charge of £150 to get their vehicles back which owners have 14 days to do. They must insure it and prove to the police it is in order before going to the garage to pay for its release.

Numerous other drivers were stopped for insurance offences but allowed to reinsure at the roadside.
