    Car tax/insurance help please!!!!

    My boyfriend is in the process of getting car insurance.

    He had a fine from Court last year for not having any tax, does this count as a conviction?

    Do you have to declare this to your insurance company?

    Yes it definately does, he probably got points too
    He'll have to declare everything or risk his insurance being invalidated


    Even if he had a non motoring conviction he has to tell the insurance company

    No you don't
    It's a fine - not a criminal conviction

    It would not show up on any PNC check or CRO check.

    wrong

    Failing to pay vehilce excise duty is a non-endorseable offence

    id tell insurance company just incase it invalidates it

    im sure there is a code that pops up for all of the different convictions, it should be in there somewhere

    except it's not a conviction :?

    On the government's website, it states:

    If you don’t tax or SORN your vehicle you could be stopped by the p … If you don’t tax or SORN your vehicle you could be stopped by the police.You’ll get an automatic penalty of £80, as well as paying for a new tax disc and any arrears of vehicle tax you owe.You could also get a County Court Judgement against you, and be fined a minimum of £1000.The maximum penalty for making a false declaration by declaring SORN when the vehicle is actually used or kept on a public road is £5000 and two years imprisonment.Your vehicle could be clamped by one of DVLA's wheelclamping partners. You’ll need to pay to have your vehicle released as well as producing a valid tax disc or a surety fee if no disc is available. If you fail to pay, your vehicle will be impounded, incurring storage charges. If you don’t pay the release or storage fees, your vehicle could be crushed or sold.



    The term penalty is used and then CCJ, I still believe it is a tax issue and not a motoring conviction?

    No tax is a civil offence, you cant be convicted for a civil offence. Simple.

    Why not ring an insurer that you're not going to purchase insurance from & ask them?
