What is Continuous Insurance Enforcement (CIE)?

Sadly, the UK has one of the highest rates of insurance evasion in Western Europe. Continuous Insurance Enforcement (CIE) is a vehicle record-based compliance and enforcement regime, introduced to reduce the number of uninsured vehicles. It's an offence to keep or use a vehicle without appropriate motor insurance, unless it has a valid Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN). The registered keeper of a vehicle will be sent an Insurance Advisory Letter (IAL) if it appears that they have no insurance. This letter will inform the registered keeper of their options to comply with CIE.
