Resolved Question:

Hi. I was recently involved in an RTC. My boyfriend was the driver and registered keeper/owner of the vehicle. I have only just found out that the vehicle doesn't have an MOT or insurance. I am going to report it to the police. I'm currently a law student in my first year at university and I was wondering, if I report it, do I have any sort of responsibility as I knew he didn't have any MOT or insurance? Thanks

1. Dear Natalie, you would only have a potential liability if you were driving the car which was uninsured and without an MOT. As you were a passenger and your boyfriend was the driver, it is he who bears responsibility for there being no insurance or MOT. The law does not place a liability on passengers where a car is being driven without insurance or an MOT. So, you have nothing to fear here.
