All vehicles must be insured

Did you know that if you own a vehicle and it is not insured, you can face a hefty fine from the General Department of Traffic? This is even if your car is off the road and you are not driving it for whatever reason.

You may have purchased a car before passing your driving test, just because the price of the vehicle was too good to pass on. Nevertheless, while the vehicle sits motionless in your drive, garage or outside your home until you pass your exam, you must still make sure that you organize a car insurance and ensure that it is covered from day one.

The DGT has communicated to the press that during February and March it will be contacting all owners of vehicles without insurance, warning them that this situation is sanctionable.

No sanctions will actually be handed out up until this point.

However, from 1 April this year, vehicle owners will be directly sent a fine as soon as DGT officials cross data with the Insurance Compensation Consortium and it shows up which vehicles are not covered.

At the moment, all bodies involved are doing their utmost to make sure that their details and information on their computers are up to date, so that once the cross-referencing procedure begins, the fewest number of mistakes occur.
