The organisations behind the new
continuous insurance enforcement (CIE) regulations have pledged to
help British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (BVRLA) members
“ease the burden of compliance”.

Speaking at a BVRLA seminar earlier
this month, representatives from the DVLA and the Motor Insurers’
Bureau (MIB) said they would “give the industry time to implement
the new regulations while also providing advice and support”.

Laws on continuous insurance due later
this year introduce a new offence of being the registered keeper of
a vehicle with no motor insurance.

As the registered keepers, leasing and
rental firms will be held liable for any fines issued against their
vehicles for being listed as uninsured on the MIB’s motor insurance

They will not be able to transfer
their fines to customers.
