Motor insurer takes it day by day

A specialist motor insurer is now offering policies that cover learner drivers for as little as a single day.

The theory behind Dayinsure's policies is that many learners find the cost of lessons mean they need to practice as much as possible in between sessions. While they can do so in a friend or family member's car, the car owner will need to extend their insurance policy to cover the learner.

ABI targets younger drivers

The Association of British Insurers is calling for legal restrictions on young drivers to help bring down premiums.

The industry body says the actions are needed because young drivers are more likely to crash, more likely to cause injury to multiple passengers, and more likely to make particularly expensive claims.

Small cars "Dangerous" claim dangerously flawed

American motor insurers have revealed that smaller cars may be more likely to lead to injuries through a crash. But there may be a flaw to the logic.

One millionth uninsured vehicle taken off road

A car belonging to an uninsured driver was seized in the West Midlands this week. What makes that noteworthy is that it's the one millionth such seizure since police received the power to do so in 2005.

Since then officers have been allowed to stop vehicles as soon as they are identified as being uninsured. That's made possible by using automatic number plate recognition technology linked to a national database of all motor insurers.

No claims loophole could hurt motoring policy-switchers

A major flaw in the way insurers deal with no-claims bonuses could mean millions of drivers are paying too much. That's the claim made by Auto Express, which made the discovery when checking up on a complaint by a reader.
