Car insurance can cover your costs if your car is damaged in an accident, theft, vandalism or fire. You are legally required to have one if you own or drive a vehicle, unless you have officially declared it off-road via SORN (Off-Road Legal Notice). You can be fined at least £300 and six penalty points if you are caught driving without car insurance. And if you end up in court, you face an unlimited fine and could be disqualified from driving.

The type of car insurance you need depends on the level of coverage you want.
