Do I NEED Insurance?

I live in the UK. If I don't insure my big 4x4, can I still drive it legally?

I am insured on a little Ford Fiesta, the insurance on this car covers me with 3rd party liability coverage for driving other cars.

SO... Can I just insure the Fiesta, not insure the big expensive 4x4 and still drive it legally? Or does it have to be insured on its own too?

Thank you for your help, please only answer if you live in or know about UK insurance law.

In Ohio you have to have insurance on all vehicles you drive on the road. Not sure of your laws but I suspect it would be similar. Call your insurance company, they'll be able to tell you.

We cannot deny the fact on how important a car insurance is. I believe the rates all depend on your car's year, make and model. I suggest you openly discuss this with your current insurance or to those whom you're inquiring on. That way you could be able to avail of the insurance depending on what situation you're in. Good luck!

Driving a vehicle on a road or in a public place without at least 3rd party insurance is illegal in UK and also in its simplest sense, Car insurance is smart planning - planning that can help protect you from potentially expensive and unexpected surprises.

Yes but we can't deny the fact that even though he knew about insurance and probably how important it is, he posted the question here. I think that you need insurance because it's like that in many other countries.

Since he has parasitic insurance, I imagine he is covered. However, he would be an idiot to not insure that Tonka Toy. Wouldn't he be about ready to kill that nut job in the donk that just T-boned his nice, shiny (or muddy) four-wheeler he has mortgaged for 1500 a month. Properly insured, this would be a minor annoyance just barely above the cable being out. Improperly insured, and you would be easier and better to just smash the other driver's head in with a sledgehammer (and you don't want to do that).
