Q421: The police stopped me and I have got no insurance, what will happen to me?

It is an offence to use a motor vehicle on a road with no insurance. You will face prosecution. There are a range of penalties, a substantial fine and points and even disqualification.

The police have powers to seize and, in appropriate cases destroy, vehicles that are being driven uninsured.
