I WAS ABROAD AND THEREFORE ON RETURN LOOKED RENEWAL NOTICE.

Customer Question

I WAS ABROAD AND THEREFORE ON RETURN LOOKED FOR A RENEWAL NOTICE. NOT HAVING HAD ONE I ASSUMED I WAS INSURED. TILL A POLICE STOPPED ME.
MY CAR WAS SEIZED AND TO RELEASE AFTER INSURANCE WAS CHECKED THE SAME DAY AND HAVING PAID £150 I GOT MY CAR BACK THE SAME DAY.
IT WAS NOT UNTIL SEVEN WEEKS HENCE THAT I RECEIVED A TICKET FOR £300 FINE AND MY LICENCE TO BE SENT. i THOUGHT HAVING SHOWN MY INSURANCE THE SAME DAY WOULD HAVE SUFFICED.
I DO NOT MIND PAYING A FINE SOMEWHERE IT IS MENTIONED £100 BUT i AM NOT HAPPY ABOUT THE ENDORSEMENT.
