    Speeding ticket with motobility car 14th Sep 17 at 1:24 PM
    So, I got a motobility car in may this year. I have been driving 12 years with no incident s but today I had a speeding ticket in the post I'm so upset, I am a very careful driver and don't intentionally speed any where.

    Does anyone know if I get points on my licence will my motobility car be taken away? I don't know what I will do without that car

    If it's a consumer contract of insurance, the insurer has to ask.

    If it's a business contract of insurance, the policyholder / applicant has to declare anything that may affect the insurer's assessment of risk, even if not asked. Carter vs Boehm applies, it established the legal concept of uberrimae fidei (utmost good faith) in all insurance contracts.

    The situation was the same for consumer contracts of insurance until a few years ago, until a new law governing consumer insurance was introduced which meant the precedent no longer applied..

    Very good, no one is paying your bill for legal advice here though.

    If only - I got my first (SP30) one in February after 37 years clean licence - Insurance informed mid term as per conditions. had to pay an extra 60 for 7 months of policy left so well over 100 pro rata for 12 months. policy was 402 so thats a 25% increase.
    Over 10 years NCB - only this one SP30 ever (no course ect)

    I may have led a sheltered life, but I've never come across an insurer increasing the premium in mid-term. Which insurer was it?

    The insurance company is Aviva - the SP30 was notified on their site when I received it - I was totally stunned when the premium rose so much.
    Understeer is when the front of the car hits the wall.
    Oversteer is when the back of the car hits the wall
    BHP is how fast you hit the wall
    Torque is how far you take the wall after you hit it.
