What are the legal obligations of drivers and riders in the UK?

In the United Kingdom, driving is a privilege, not a right. To legally drive on UK roads, drivers must possess a valid driving licence and vehicle registration document (V5C). These documents must be issued by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA). In addition, all vehicles must have a valid MOT certificate and road tax. 

Before you drive or ride, you must meet the following.

  • A valid driving licence and the minimum driving or riding age
  • If you are a leader driver, you must be supervised by an experienced and qualified driver (except if riding a motorcycle).
  • Display correct learner plates (L plates or D plated in Wales)

Your vehicle must meet the following.

  • Your vehicle must be registered with the DVLA.
  • You must have a current TAX and MOT certificate.
  • You must also have third-party motor insurance to drive.
  • In addition, your vehicle must be roadworthy to be driven on UK roads. 

You may be subject to legal action if your vehicle does not meet these requirements. Therefore, ensuring that your car is up to date with all legal requirements before driving on UK roads is essential. Driving without obeying the law can result in severe penalties, so it is best to avoid driving if your vehicle does not meet the requirements. Thanks for being a responsible driver!

By following the rules of the road and obeying the law, drivers and riders can help to make UK roads safe for everyone.

Frequently Asked Question

Always check the vehicle’s history before buying a used car to see if there are any outstanding loans, if it has ever been reported stolen, or if it has ever been written off. If there are any problems, a car check could help you avoid wasting time, money, and even headaches.

No, you cannot check your VIN history for free.

The model year, body style, and original equipment that came with the car when it launched may all get identified using the VIN or Vehicle Identification Number. A VIN lookup lets you determine whether purchasing a used vehicle is a wise choice based on the car’s specs and what has occurred to it in the past.

Until now, there has never been a cheap HPI check.  Thus it would be best if you were very careful of any companies that make this promise. A “Free HPI Check” is inaccurate and won’t give you the details you need to stay safe from car fraud and scams.

The name of the financing business and the agreement number will get listed on the free car finance check. You should check the vehicle’s registration before you buy a used car to see if any finance is outstanding on it, if it has  never been in an accident, or if it has ever been stolen.

Dial the police department in your area.

Ask to be connected to your local police by dialing “101.” Make sure you have the registration number, make, model, and color on hand. You’ll receive a crime reference number, which you’ll need to tell your insurance provider or request a refund of your vehicle tax.

Suppose your car is declared written off; ownership transfers to the insurance provider. If the vehicle is in its pre-accident condition, you will receive a cash settlement payment equal to its value (the settlement amount).

Getting the UK’s cheapest car check online, which includes a car scrap check, is the simplest way to determine whether the vehicle you intend to purchase has ever been marked as scrapped. Cheap Car Check will search its history using DVLA data to discover if it has ever registered as scrapped.
