A driver who treated roads like a ‘racetrack’ got an unexpected surprise when the police seized his vehicle after it transpired that he was not insured to drive the supercar.
The bright yellow Lamborghini Urus was being driven at speed around Stevenson Square in Manchester right in front of a marked ARV unit.
Once the vehicle was stopped and the driver was spoken to by the police, it turned out that the driver thought that he would be insured to drive the car because as he is a named driver on his parent’s policy.
A tweet shared by @gmptraffic said:
‘The driver of this Lamborghini felt the need to use Stevenson Square @GMPCityCentre as a racetrack, in full view of a liveried firearms patrol.
‘Turns out him being a named driver on his parent’s Golf didn’t cover him to drive the vehicle, so it has been seized for no insurance’.
While some Comprehensive insurance policies allow policyholders to drive other peoples vehicles with third party only cover, no UK insurance policy allows named drivers to have this entitlement.
When using a ‘driving other cars’ clause, the driver must ensure that the vehicle being driven has its own comprehensive insurance policy.
