I'm insured through AA insurance, here's a quote from the policy:

 

 

 

 

"We do not provide cover while your vehicle is being used:

 

  • (several points not relevant to this)
  •  

    if it would not have passed a Warrant of Fitness at the time

     

    of the event."

     

 

 


Hmm, what to write...

A couple of cases like this have gone to court

In each case the insurance company lost. They must be able to show that not having a warrant contributed in some way to the accident.

That's good to know.
Thinking about it...
If you take it to the extreme, you could have a rear seat belt that is frayed, and not up to WOF standard. It obviously has no relevance to the front seat passengers if there's a crash.

Don't worry, insurance companies would never try to get out of a claim by using spurious reasons like that...

It's about time we stopped thinking about vehicle road worthiness as something that is only required for one (or two) days per year....

Not everyone will agree with me but

If you can't tell if your car is roadworthy without a WOF you probably shouldn't be driving.

If you treat driving like it is a sport (I do) then with a basic inspection and some spirited driving you should easily pick up any problems well before your local testing station. If you don't fix it straight away...like I said you shouldn't be driving.

too many people treat driving and owning a car as a right not a privilege.
