Fair enough comment, it won't stop those drivers, but there will be ongoing research into software that recognises the make and model and colour of a car and cross refrences it to the DVLA database in conjunction with ANPR so unless the false plates are on an identical car that will catch them out,

I really think youre crediting some of these uninsured drivers with too much inteligence, lets face it theres probably a rather skint postman in portsmouth driving around in an uninsured car because all his money was scammed off him, wouldnt even think of changing the plates and he wont be the only one

I think you'll find it's also not true about the 30.

The quoted 30 is I believe what's paid by your insurance company into the Motor Insurers Bureau.I'd bet you'll find that won't change if there's no uninsured drivers.

30 or 90 pales into insignificance against a serious injury or fatality , especially if it's a " bread winner "

But it negates the argument of it costing you 30 quid if it's going to cost you 30 quid anyway.

Wouldnt be ironic though if the time you realise you cant keep your paper in order is when you get fined for no insurance

Correct, I was restoring an old vintage tractor, and didnt renew the licence as it was in my workshop for over 2 years..... in bits, then I got fined automagicly Best thing is .. the vintage tax disc is free anyway
