Organised Gangs Drive Increase in 'Crash for Cash' Claims

Posted by on November 20th 2014 in General News, Insurance, Uncategorized

'Crash for cash' are road traffic accidents deliberately caused in order to claim whiplash compensation.

How to minimise the risk of being targeted by the cash for crash fraudsters:
  • Stay alert: Pay attention to your driving and the cars/traffic around you.
  • Keep your distance: Keep a safe distance between your vehicle and the one in front.
  • Roundabouts and slip roads: fraudsters target roundabouts and slip roads...

Changes to Vehicle Tax for the Motor Trade

Posted by on October 9th 2014 in General News, Insurance

From the 1 October 2014 tax discs will no longer be issued by the DVLA and vehicles won’t be required to display windscreen tax discs. Instead, vehicle tax details will be held online by the DVLA. The DVLA will continue to issue vehicle tax reminders to registered vehicle keepers.

  2. The DVLA must be notified if the vehicle is being SORNed - using the V5C Vehicle Registration Certificate
  3. The vehicle tax isn’t transferable - the seller will automatically...
