I recently was almost caught driving with an expired motor insurance while in the UK! Luckily the cops let me off after much pleading and many promises that I would get it renewed as soon as possible. Luckily there are a lot of motor insurance companies online today, such as CIS Motor Insurance, which allow easy and hassle-free purchase plus a 10% discount when you do it online. Best of all, they offer a No Claim Discount and an Introductory Discount when you sign up with them. No Claim Discounts are really good as it can save you quite a bit on your renewal. So the lesson of the day was never leave home with an expired motor insurance!
