Even if they did not ask when the policy was arranged, they could ask for them to be provided in the event of a claim on the policy. If they then found out that there were points on the licence they could void the insurance and you would then be liable for any sum claimed by a third party.

 

If you don't want to be messed around by some of the online companies who seem to make buying Insurance a hassle, you should contact a local Insurance brokers.

We could do with some help from you.

I am sure an address change is free of charge. Unless you also have to update your photo as well. But if the latter is the case then if it's expired you do not have a valid license anyway until you update your photo.

Yes it is free unless you have a photocard licence, where they charge £20. Don't most people have photocard licences now ?

UB.

The only charge with a photo card license is the £20 every 10 years when your photo needs updating. Change of address is free.

Of course if you want points removed or anything like a replacement license is charged at about £20 but that's all that's charged for afaik.

The only ones that ask for a copy are the smaller no frills insurers. The big insurers have systems in place so they dont need a copy.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..
