Car insurance when you sel your car

Evening all.

Is it acceptable to keep my current car insurance going after I sell my car so I continue to drive other vehicles (3rd party) for a few weeks.

Does it have any implications for the new owner trying to insure it?

Many thanks

i doubt you would be insured. You would no longer be the registered keeper

That could be a bit of a ball ache as I'm probably just going to be using mates and family members cars for around 4 weeks or so.

Nope, as you have to be the registered keeper (and owner).

If it's going to be for about 4 weeks you could suspend it and there'll tag it on to the end (Extra 4 weeks) although I don't think you'll be insured to drive other vehicles. if you do keep you policy running the New owner won't have any problem insuring it but not sure where you stand legally if you had a accident whilst driving someone else's Car best ring you insurance company to make certain

I had this dilemma last year, bottom line is there isn't much you can do other than get a day or two's insurance and line them all up for the same period, or find someone who is happy with you having a drive without cover which on the face of it is not sensible but happens a hell of a lot in this situation
