Can you get normal insurance if it is impounded?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Well am asking whether I can have my car released from pound by getting the car insured on normal years insurance cover rather than impounded insurance cover. Both are insurances. Why should there be impounded cover as insurance is insurance.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 5 months ago.

I suppose in legal theory, an insurance policy that covers you would be adequate but I don't think you can get convention insurance to drive away from a pound because of the high risk and the police won't release it without impound insurance unless, of course, you produce a police that shows you were insured at the time of being stopped. Can I clarify anything for you ? Jo
