Van Insurance has been a legal requirement since the Road Traffic Act (1930) was introduced by the Government for every motorist. As a road user in the UK, you are legally obliged to be insured against the possibilities of injuring another person or causing damage to their property. Anyone caught driving a vehicle without Van Insurance could receive a heavy fine or a driving ban or a complete seizure of their vehicle.
The Police Crime Survey of 2011-12 in England revealed that approximately 47,000 commercial vehicles were stolen in the UK every year, of which only 38% could be recovered. What’s more, the majority of vans were stolen from residential areas at night which is of importance to most van drivers.
