Hopefully you guys and gals will be able to help out i couldnt....
My mate was stopped last week for no insurance, he was on his way to dropping off the car at the garage for it to be dealt with as and when they could as he wasnt going to be here for a few weeks but had no official appointment just told to drop off with keys...
He was stopped at roadside and the car was confiscated for no insurance now the questions are:
1) My insurance certificate says i can drive ANY car and im covered 3rd party only can i use this as his proof of insurance if i go with him to collect the car??
2) on the form they gave him saying hey confiscated the car they have crossed out the prices it says (eg: towing fee = £xxx and per day £xxx) Both prices are crossed out does this mean he wont have to pay???
3) if my insurance isnt enough can he get the PAYG insurance (eg: 30 day insurance)
Any help is appreciated.
PS: i ask if i can do it with my insurance as they also said he was disqualified from driving 2 days before he was stopped however he wasnt in court or anything but they are trying to tell him he was and they printed something out which says he "appeared" however i know he wasnt as we were both 90 miles away on the date he was supposidly there
