    When yer get the details tell the police. Also ask yer mates wot he does ferra living and where and when he starts work. They may sit near by un wait fer him ter go ter wurk. They will want ter catch him at it.

    So if it were to get stolen, who would the insurer pay out?

    Driving a car without tax. Linked to car through driving it. That will link to the speeding fine. They can take the car to the pound fer no tax.

    Yah. But if not the registered keeper they could explain why. Hmmm could always contact a couple of the big insurance companies and tell them whats going on if you find out which company. They all seem to have the same underwriters, so that could make things interesting for the scrote

    That's not technically true, if a vehicle isn't taxed or mot'd but is insured and then is involved in an accident, the insururers will honour a third party claim.

    Correct, if the insurer finds out there's no tax.

    I'm bl@@dy sure they'll check - any damn excuse to get out of paying ( ask me how I know :mad: ) ...

    All insurers will reduce cover to Act insurance for untaxed - and many will do the same for no MOT - including .... if it fails, and you drive it home :eek:

    Yer can insure a car with no tax and no mot. It just means yer can't drive it ont road or claim fer crashing it. Yer still get theft and damage insurance as part of that witch is wot most peeps want.

    He's betterer oft giving info to police as they have the option to make checks and arrest if they catch him. If his insurance contact him then he knows someone has tipped them oft. He will then try hide more or ditch the car fer another cheap run erbout.
