  1. Well there you go. Go and tell a terrorist what size vehicle they need to breach a Varioguard barrier. Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
  2. George, Ive got to ask you this question. If as you are driving at, you want it to be a No Insurance offence. Who is going to prove the offence in court. 1. You 2. The insurance company ? The driver will claim DOV and unless you can rebut it with a statement from his insurer saying he is not covered he walks. Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
  3. George, Your question was, Is he insured or not. You have answered your own question. If the insurance company say if full knowledge of the circumstances, He is insured. That is the end of the matter. HE IS INSURED. Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
  4. George I cant really make it more simple. Hello ABC insurance (other insurance companies available) how can I help you? Yes I have a car stopped. Your policyholder is claiming DOV cover to drive it. He is shown as the keeper, but states he has given the car to his daughter as its a birthday present and today is her birthday. She is insured on her own policy of insurance for the vehicle. The daughter is present in the car and confirms the same. Would he be insured in these circumstances? Wait for decision from Ins co.

  5. George, after outlining the circs, you asked the question :- The answer is as I posted, Only the insurance company can say if given the circumstances he is insured under DOV cover. Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
  6. I realistic terms its a phone call to the insurance company. As the front of a V5 says, "This document is not proof of Ownership. It shows who is responsible for registering and taxing the vehicle." Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
  7. Bill is an idiot as he would found out having himself on the policy in the first place would of made it loads cheaper for the actual insurance. Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
  8. I doubt it as its a long way for a Fed rep to visit you in Cumbria when you get a PSD interview. Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
  9. Very dangerous game. I agree completely with John Apter. So, first question, are the police going to be billing the Ambulance service fir use of vehicles? Have a minor collision on way, who's motor insurance are you driving on given that at that point, its questionable as to the use being for a policing purpose. Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
  10. You dont need to worry about alienating yourself from them. They are already so detached from reality you will not have a problem. Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
  11. If you come across this drivel on SM etc and fancy some fun ask the following, as I've never got an answer yet. 2 part question 1. You usually refer to the Magna Carta, in simple terms is this not a list of Do's and Dont's. What can be done and not done? That were agreed, written down and signed by the Sovereign King of the day. 2 Are not laws and statutes of today, sets of rules, do's and dont's, can and cant's, that are agreed, written down and signed by the Sovereign Queen (Royal Ascent) of the day? I've Never got a reply. Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
  12. Stuck off what exactly?? Dismissed yes, You have to be on something to get struck off it!! Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
  13. Too right, always give it a run. Even if I can get a 3 line MG11 saying something like, "its my car but I was drunk and cant remember if I said he could take it or not" With dubious TWOC like this, you may not get the right result now but doesnt half help the insurance company.

  14. HM. The issue and question is around consent in using a vehicle from a known family member, and knowing the result that will come back from YOT, which will be a juvenile caution, NOT a ticket, as you cant issue tickets to juveniles. Plus it can't be a proper TWOC when C Consent is the issue. Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
  15. Sometimes you need to look at the bigger picture and ask the question, "He's 16, will a "technical TWOC" add anything. Will he get anything further from a YOT panel. Not very likely. Taken as proper TWOC, different story. Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
