  7. Daughter acquired her latest car in Apr 2012, notified her insurance co and paid the additional premium versus her old car.. Policy expired mid-May. xxxxxxxxxxxxxx" filled in her details (which included date of car purchase) and chose Hastings Direct, who insured her (she has 5 years NCB) but subsequently asked for sight of V5C. They then sent her a letter which arrived today (12th June) advising they had debited her a further £140.
