Can I insure a van for private use?


I want to buy a 141-reg Ford Focus van and I will only use it privately. Can I insure it privately? Even though it's a van I don't have a company or VAT number. It's a 1.6 diesel.

Hi John,

You can absolutely insure it as a private vehicle, but the only issue is that means reverting to the old by-engine-capacity tax system, so it’ll cost you €514 a year.
