    If you have a cordless drill, stick a 5mm drill bit in it and drill holes in the sides of the tyres, much easier than slashing them, you can then blame it on vandals.
    no police, no grief

    This site might be worth a look - http://www.miic.org.uk/public/contact_miic.htm

    If the police are notified, the vehicle will be seized and can only be reclaimed upon production of valid documentation and payment of release and storage fees, in addition to any fines applied by the courts. If not reclaimed, the vehicle will be crushed / disposed of.

    Jack it up and remove the wheels. At least 2 so she can't put the spare on.

    So if she hit someone, you could live with your conscience knowing that for the sake of a phone call, that could have been prevented?

    She's a grown adult and she's made a conscious decision to stick two fingers up to the law.

    Unlicenced and uninsured drivers are the scum of the earth. Sadly my employment forces me to share the road with them 100,000 miles a year and I can pretty much guarantee the serious accident I have will no doubt involve an unlicensed/uninsured driver so my family will get nothing and lose everything.

    To the OP, if you don't want to ring them yourself, PM me with the vehicle registration and the street/town she lives in and I'll phone them.


    Obviously you didn't read my post. I was suggesting it is a hard thing to do and there are other options that can be tried.

    But hey ho let's just hang em high, that is far simpler!!

    so what are you going to do?
  • Scary, very very scary.

    I hope OP has done all of the above. I'd never let any of my sons drive without insurance or MOT or tax and if they had a health problem too - well, I'd help them - but the car would've been long gone by now, before I even thought to ask a question like the OP has.

    sorry to inject a bit of reality but if you get involved in a serious accident caused by an uninsured drive the Motor Insurers Bureau will pick the costs

    Actually, lets have that right.

    If you're involved in a serious accident, the MIB will pick up the costs using the funds it has available which are generated from every single motor vehicle insurance policy anyone takes out so in fact, if you're involved in a serious accident, every insured driver picks up the costs which adds £30 a year to everyones premium.

    And the MIB don't pay out nearly as much as you'd get from a normal claim.

    I think you’re wrong……

    The amount of the claim is, at the end of the day, decided by a judge in a court case between you and the uninsured driver. The MIB step in if the judgement of the court remains unpaid because the other driver was not insured.

    They do have a £300 excess and a limit on property claims of £250k. Injury & death claims have no limit
