Motor Insurance

What are the different types of Motor Insurance?

A broker can discuss your insurance requirements but basically you must have motor insurance for your vehicle if you use it on roads and in public places, even in Cornwall. Although, you do not need to insure your vehicle if it is kept off the road and declared as off the road (SORN). This rule is called ‘continuous insurance enforcement’.

You can cover the cost of damage to other vehicles, people or property when it’s your fault or if your cars stolen. You can also get a more comprehensive policy that will cover repairs to your vehicle if it’s been involved in an accident.
