Continuous Insurance Enforcement

As part of the Continuous Insurance Enforcement (CIE) legislation, it is an offence to be the keeper of a vehicle without insurance unless you have notified the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) that your vehicle is being kept off the road using a Statutory Off Road Notice (SORN).

Offenders face fines and seizure of their vehicles

If, after receiving an Insurance Advisory Letter (IAL), 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.
