Nobody is except from accidents, so don’t take the risk.

One in seven Brits admit breaking the law by driving without insurance, with 6% knowingly getting behind the wheel of their own car with no cover. While a further 6% admit borrowing someone else’s car without insurance, according to research from moneysupermarket.com.

14% of those who owned up to driving uninsured admitted that they did so because they were unaware of the need for insurance, while 26% blamed being in-between insurance policies for driving uninsured.

18-34 year olds were the most likely to drive uninsured with 30% admitting to it, while just 5% of over 55 year olds did. Men were also twice as likely to drive uninsured.

A spokesperson from Cost.co.uk:

“New rules make it illegal for any car you own in the UK to be uninsured, even if it is not being driven, unless it is declared as SORN (statutory off road notice). Part of these measures is to drive down uninsured drivers on the road. It really is not worth the risk of driving uninsured, not only is it illegal and could see six points on your license, but you also won’t be covered if you crash your car and need repairs. Nobody is except from accidents, so don’t take the risk. Even if you’re borrowing someone’s car, it’s important to make sure you’re insured, so look into one day car insurance.”
