    check if your insurance is registered on the DVLA database.

    it has been known not to be and if it aint, you may get pulled as uninsured :Eek!:

    if you've just insured/reinsured it may not be on yet...in this world of high speed communications it still takes a few days i believe

    worth ringing them in my book.

    you will probably be ok as you have the certificate but its a pain getting pulled for nothing you've done wrong.

    Interesting thread - have just checked on ours and while it is on the model vehicle it shows is wrong - that in itself could cause Mr Plod to take too much interest. Phone call tomorrow then

    Got a multibike insurance with NU.. Spent years trying to get all the bikes on the PNC..
    NU always said they only put the primary bike on. In the end gave up and went to Carole Nash and they put all the bikes on the database no problem..

    Reason for all that squit is cos I got pulled a few times.. Ok it was a pain sometimes ( and sometimes the pulling plod turned out to be nice folk and I actually got two good mates from it ! ) but each time it was a simple case of them making a fone call to confirm details ( with NU )....

    So even if your not on the database do not worry or panic.. as long as you know you are insured and know the company you are with all will be well :Smile:

    Although it would be an irritation to be stopped for doing nothing wrong, as long as you have the Insurance Certificate, Vehicle Registration document and your driving licence to hand then it will be a quick cursory check. The Police use the Automated Number Plate Recognition systems to do on the spot checks and know that these problems occur with the DVLA database so as long as you have the required evidence they will soon be sending you on your way :thumb: The problem is not with the Police it is the delay in getting the information uploaded on to the DVLA systems :Angry:

    agreed but its the inconvenience of being stopped and 'interrogated' for something that isnt your fault and should be done automatically but isn't.

    come on pappa nothing better than being stopped when you know you are right you can be pleasantely annoying to them .tell them to go and catch criminals instead of harrasing motorists . get their number name etc make a fuss delay them as much as you can stops them harrasing others . :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Absolutely agree.. But then we do live in a fairly tightly controlled regime so cannot really expect different ( and no, I do not really blame govt.. I blame the poxy terrorists who gave govt's the excuse to keep tabs on us all )

    As I get older and am not in such a rush all the time, I do not mind so much getting a tug ( if I know I am righteous ! :Cool: ) ..
    But yes, it IS an imposition and with your info ( thank ewe sir ! ) one that can be avoided :thumb:

    I have read of one occasion where a couple were stopped in their motorhome (if I remember correctly) which wasn't on the database and they didn't have any paper work. They had it impounded and it caused them considerable hassle. I expect it's rare but these days with all the technology that the 'authorities' have it is worth checking.

    its not compulsary for us to carry any form of identity neither is it compulsory for us to carry insurance or driving licence ,mot,s etc .it would be wrong for the police to impound the vehicle if you do show an identity , photo identity is enough . always take their number and name ,vehicle reg etc . best to have some identity as then it cuts out the terrorist bit. always be polite but you can be awkward. there is too much bully boy authority these days stand up and let them know you have had enough .

    the police have the power to impound any vehicle not showing insurance or tax if the driver cant prove otherwise at the time...ie, ringing their insurance company ect.

    as far as the police are concerned the vehicle is not insured/taxed and should not be on the road.
    you will be charged for recovery and daily storage charges until you collect it and must produce a valid certificate to get it back.

    My vehicle was not on the DB when I was with the last company,when I checked with them they didn't seem too bothered,when I said I would bill them the impound fee and any subsequent expenses,it was on within 48 hours!!
