WHAT IS ROAD RISK INSURANCE?

Motor trade road risk insurance is designed to cover your business if any damage or injury is caused by a vehicle that’s in your care for work purposes.

You’ll need road risk trade insurance to run your business if you’re a full-time or part-time motor trader, or work in any area of the motor trade dealing with vehicles. Road risk cover is the minimum, legally required form of motor trade insurance.

WHAT DOES ROAD RISK INSURANCE COVER?

A motor trade road risk policy covers you to drive your own and other vehicles as part of your business. What this type of insurance can pay out for will depend on the level of cover you choose.

THIRD PARTY
ONLY

Third party is the most basic road risk insurance you can opt for. It covers damage to other people and their property in the event of an accident. So, if you damage another vehicle, your insurance will pay out to fix the vehicle you hit. Third party cover doesn’t insure you for damage, fire and theft of your own vehicles.

THIRD PARTY FIRE AND
THEFT (TPFT)

This level of road risk insurance offers third party cover as well as insuring you for fire damage to, and theft of, your vehicles.

COMPREHENSIVE
COVER

This covers you for third party, fire and theft, plus your own vehicles will be insured against damage. If you are involved in an accident that’s your fault and you are injured, you can also claim for this on a comprehensive policy.

If you have premises that you trade from, you may be better off with combined motor trade insurance, which gives you road risk cover as well as insuring your premises and equipment.

Bear in mind that if you’re driving vehicles you’re buying and selling, you’ll also need trade plates to comply with UK law.
