    You clearly didn't bother to read the article I linked to. The point was that a clerk at a Portuguese (for example) rental office will expect the paper counterpart. If you wave something else at...

    It is normal for the insurance policy to cease after a car is 'written off', since you cannot insure a car that doesn't exist. I am sure that if you read all the letters you will have received, it...

    Paperless Driving Licences

    In what it says is a purge on red tape, the DVLA is abolishing the paper counterpart that currently accompanies all UK photocard licences. It is advising drivers to destroy the document (not their...

    After the last collision that I was involved in, where a guy tore his wing mirror off on the side of my truck while overtaking where he shouldn't, I was well supported by my boss. I took pictures of...

    I think that the real cop comes through sometimes. On the one hand they pull some dangerous manouvres to catch a minor criminal and on the other, get visibly frustrated with lenient sentences.

    They do use these 'vanity' plates as an excuse to stop people though. Add some dark window glass and it seems to get right up their noses.

    You know what happened and you are convinced that you did nothing wrong. The problem you have is that the other guy probably thinks exactly the same. Even if your account is perfectly accurate and...

    I have seen them do it on police interceptors, for the benefit of the camera. I expect that they would be a good excuse to stop a car and give them the opportunity to check all the rest.

    This prompted me to have a look at my licence: I simplified it as the definitions go on a bit.

    I don't entirely disagree, but on this occasion I think they have a case. If you park your car somewhere that it is likely to be damaged by passing traffic, you are a higher risk than me when I park...

    It never ceases to amaze me that amateurs, with no idea of the forces involved, think they know better than the engineers who design cars. If it was meant to have wider/bigger/fatter wheels, they...

    Sadly I suspect that you, or rather your insurer, will be landed with the bill for your repairs. If the other driver flatly denies it and there is no supporting evidence (like your paint on his car)...

    Just to add - if you do decide to settle directly, the usual split is for each to pay their own costs.

    You may be surprised how much it costs to have a scratch filled and re-sprayed. I have often advocated settling these minor scrapes directly, but these days, I would let my insurance handle it. You...

    I cannot see any reason why this should result in a 100% increase. There will certainly be some effect, by more in the 20% region I think. Of course, there is no way of knowing for certain until it...

    I think that building regs would be a bigger problem for him than Planning Permission. If you tell the council, they will send someone round who knows the rules.

    No need to make a claim but you must give your insurer all the details. You will pay nothing as the excess only applies to your own claim/damage.

    You will suffer some increase in premiums next...
