Yes you do. Just say the handbrake was loose and it rolled down the road and killed someone, what would happen then. ?

Any vehicle that is taxed must also be insured.

Yes you do. Even if it is off road, it now needs to be insured unless you declared it SORN and surrendered the tax disc.

If its parked on a public road yes I think it does. If our keeping it on a private driveway no it doesn't but it still needs to e taxed unless you've declared it SORN. Though obviously if it's not insured even on your private drive then if it's stolen damaged etc etc then it all comes out of your pocket. :)

If it has a current road fund licence then it must be insured. End of
