Rated 1 out of 5 by Kateem75 from Very disappointing I bought a new car around the time my insurance was due to renew and this caused all kinds of issues – unnecessarily it turns out. The initial man from customer services was polite and helpful but didn’t explain things fully enough. The lady I spoke to 2 days later advised me incorrectly, was rather short with me and failed to follow anything up or record the phone conversation on the system. The final lady I spoke to sorted everything out but he whole process nearly led to my new car being uninsured and I received no compensation for this trouble. I will not be using John Lewis for inurance again.
The Road Traffic Act, 1933 requires all drivers of mechanically propelled vehicles in public places to have at least third-party insurance, or to have obtained exemption – generally by depositing a (large) sum of money with the High Court as a guarantee against claims. In 1933 this figure was set at Â£ 15,000. 6 The Road Traffic Act, 1961 7 (which is currently in force) repealed the 1933 act but replaced these sections with functionally identical sections.
Yet crucially lenders CAN’T SEE these soft searches, so they have no impact on your credit worthiness. The only time a hard search – which lenders can see – may go on your file is if you then go on and actually apply for insurance; specifically âpay monthly’ insurance (because they effectively pay upfront for you and you repay the loan over the year).
In 1930, the UK government introduced a law that required every person who used a vehicle on the road to have at least third-party personal injury insurance. Today, this UK law is defined by the Road Traffic Act 1988 , 14 (generally referred to as the RTA 1988 as amended) which was last modified in 1991. The Act requires that motorists either be insured, or have made a specified deposit ( Â£ 500,000 in 1991) and keeps the sum deposited with the Accountant General of the Supreme Court, against liability for injuries to others (including passengers) and for damage to other persons’ property, resulting from use of a vehicle on a public road or in other public places.

The insurance certificate or cover note issued by the insurance company constitutes the only legal evidence that the policy to which the certificate relates satisfies the requirements of the relevant law applicable in Great Britain, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man, the Island of Guernsey, the Island of Jersey and the Island of Alderney. The Act states that an authorised person, such as a police officer, may require a driver to produce an insurance certificate for inspection. If the driver cannot show the document immediately on request, and evidence of insurance cannot be found by other means such as the MID, then the Police are empowered to seize the vehicle instantly.
