Can I insure a foreign car with italian number plate in the UK without changing the number plate?
The car at the moment is in Italy and I will go and get it, will it be possible to insure it without changing the number plate? the car is a Volvo 40
Yes, But you have to pay a small payment to keep that Number plate. I know why you would want to keep it anyway, The GB plates are terrible. Nice car mate, Go for it.
My friends live in italy and are driving their van over to the UK in march, can I drive it in the UK on their insurance? Or do I need to insure myself? I have been told the van has italian insurance that covers anyone who is driving it, does this apply here?
