Consultation description

Seeking views on our proposal to remove the 2 existing alternatives to conventional motor insurance of:

  1. deposits
  2. securities

The alternatives, which would be amended accordingly, are:

  • 144 (1) and 146 of the Road Traffic Act 1988
  • Article 90(2)(b) and Article 93 of the Road Traffic Order 1981

Removing the options would require all persons using a vehicle on a road or public place to have compulsory third party motor insurance.
