Whether it be due to a missed direct debit instalment or a breakdown in communication insurers are frequently cancelling insurance policies for unsuspecting drivers, putting them at risk of losing their driving licence. Often the first time drivers discover to their shock that there is any issue is when they have been stopped by the police at the roadside and informed that no valid policy of insurance is in place.
