Collecting A New Car

Question:

Hi, because soon I’m going to buy my first car, my question doesn’t regard a committed offence but I was wondering how can I bring a new car bought from private seller from the place I buy it to the place I live ( distance of 50 miles ish) without having insurance for this car in my name. Is it a driving offence? If yes how can I avoid this? (I don’t have anybody with the right insurance who could drive it for me). Therefore is situation different when you buy from trade seller? Kind Regards

Paula Says:

You have to put the insurance in place before you drive it otherwise you commit an offence which carries 6-8 penalty points. If you are a new driver you will have your licence revoked.

The situation is the same whoever you buy from – if you drive without insurance you will get points no matter who you buy the car from.
