    Speaking as someone who drove an estate stuffed to the roof with camping equipment through Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland and France with no difficulty I would also reassure you.

    I give up.

    Motman - I am not disagreeing with you. My example was just to point out that it was possible to get points when you are not the driver.

    I have seen where the same question is posted on every forum that has the slightest relevance. It doesn't seem to be the case here but a simple search for some key phrase will usually show it up.

    I repeat. If I fail to renew the insurance on my car when it is due and I was caught driving it, I would be charged with the insurance offence but not any tax related offence. Tax and insurance fall...

    When I have an impatient driver behind me, I tell myself (and I know it's almost certainly not true) that maybe his house is on fire or something, and let him past as soon as I can.

    OK - The letter of the law says 'ridden or led' - no dispute.

    No argument with you Motman. Loony is saying that the insurance will be void if the car is not taxed. Even if it is not SORNed it will still be insured.

    I know of no law that says that the tax becomes void if the insurance lapses, or the other way around. It is a requirement to have both, but failure to have one does not automatically void the other.
