Use by the policyholder for social domestic and pleasure purposes, use to and from a permanent place of business and use by the policyholder in person, in connection with the policyholder’s business and that of his/her employer/business partner. Excluding: use for hiring, commercial travelling, racing, pacemaking, speed testing, competitions, rallies, trials or use for any purpose in connection with the Motor Trade.
Our underwriter defines motor trading as a full or part-time business where the individual buys, sell, repairs, transports, services or valets vehicles or vehicle parts . This would also include running a garage or MOT test centre. As the policy will not cover those involved in and associated with the motor trade, it is up to you to confirm that you have no involvement in any of the activities listed before proceeding to purchase.
