Car leasing customers have been reminded of the importance of making sure their fleet vehicles are suitably insured.
The Continuous Insurance Enforcement Law is due to come into effect on June 20th, making it mandatory to have car insurance for vehicles unless they are being kept off the road and are subject to a SORN, or Statutory Off Road Notice.
As a result, it is no longer acceptable for a driver insured on any vehicle to get behind the wheel of a car with no insurance policy of its own.
The Association of Car Fleet Operators is advising car leasing customers that now is the time to make sure they do not fall foul of the new regulations.
Director Stewart Whyte says: “In general, fleet operators have a good record for having insurance in place.
“However, there are some potential traps for fleets – and an early review, plus ongoing attention, is vital to avoid possible prosecution.”
