    Yes it is.

    If caught without insurance you'll be in trouble, that's what!

    Yes. If you drive without it, you face a mahoosive fine and possible prison sentence, I believe, not to mention a good few years of a driving ban.

    Ten points, the car taken away, and a cracking fine if I remember rightly.

    I got mine from Admiral which was pretty cheap, compared to other places anyway.

    Really? I think mines like £800 or something and that was when I was a completely new driver. Though I did add my parents on it as well, which I think made it cheaper

    Six points I think, but you're bang on about the other stuff.

    Police can still catch you at night perfectly reasonably.



    Anyway in my view anyone who drives without insurance is a complete and utter selfish c***. If you can't afford to properly use the car then don't use it, it is not some god given right to be able to drive.

    You're a real piece of scum. How can you even think about encouraging driving without insurance. You are the reason prices are so high for the rest of us.

    With relation to your previous post about getting a superbike, I retract what I said and you should really get on with removing yourself from the gene pool as soon as possible.
