My partner used false information to buy and insure car as he has no id. he was stopped by police and vehicle was seized. the insurance is now invalid and although he has nominated me to collect vehicle on his behalf I cannot get insurance cover as car is in police compound.
I have tried ecar but they do not offer insurance to cars which have been seized.
The insurance companies will refuse this insurance if it is in a compound. In addition when your friend comes to buy insurance next time, expect it to cost several more times than the car cost.
If he drives with no insurance again, he is likely to get a substantial ban and short custodial sentence. He needs to find a friend who has an insurance policy on their own car which covers them to drive other vehicles. Whether it does that or not is on the certificate. Most policies used to do that but more and more they do not. Alternatively pay a recovery company to retrieve it. Expect to pay £200 or so.
There is no reason why he cannot get full insurance for 12 months himself.
Can I help further?
