You should have received a letter stating change of ownership. This would be your proof. As an AVI I can see the date and kms when a vehicle changed hands as I am inputting a WoF so you could try an AA express or post shop for a print out on the car in question could cost ya.wont be much tho.

thanks, but those websites just tell you if the is of interest to police and if they are WOFed and REGed.

probably lost the letter, but i will give the post office / AA a go :)

No, not the Post Office, State Insurance! Don't mess about guessing what might or might not work, give them a call.

Driver-smac, Jan 7, 2012, 7:16 pm

Really! why not the post office! they used to. And they see the same screen as I do when doing WoFs when they do rego updates

You can get a refund. I sold a car last year and forgot to cancel insurance. I was refunded the amount from when I sold it to the date when it was eventually cancelled. The insurance company dated it from when someoneelse (new owner) had taken out new insurance.

WHat I mean is, this is all a waste of time until the OP contacts their insurance company and speaks to them about what they want. I get the impression he/she hasn't even talked to them yet.

Driver-smac, Jan 7, 2012, 7:31 pm

I have spoken to them, they require proof for date of sale. which I don't haveon hand. they suggested the post office. I was wondering what I ask for at the post office.

I have spoken to the insurance co. they suggested I might want to follow it up.

If you purchase the full report from Carjam the ownership details are shown with the sale dates, if the owners have requested that their details are private it states this but still shows the date of ownership change

You would fill out the appropriate form and get the registered ownership history.

Driver-stacie_nz, Jan 7, 2012, 9:46 pm

not too much third party. (a couple of hundred). I think it was about 8 or 9 dollars a week.

Driver-millna, Jan 7, 2012, 10:03 pm

thanks for drinking and MBing all at once. it makes good reading.

Driver-millna, Jan 7, 2012, 10:04 pm

ring up your insurance company and ask if they would be willing to pay out if the new owner of the car had a accident and it was a right off.since you were paying the premiums so long as the new owner was over 25 they wouldnt have to be a named driver so therefore your claim would be valid

I got a refund from state for 4mnths worth of insurance.

Driver-00basil00, Jan 8, 2012, 5:19 pm

This happened to me a few years back. I was with State.It was actually them that informed me that I wass till paying insurance for a car I no longer own, so they must have a way of telling that you are no longer the registered owner.I am pretty sure that they have the ability to look it up on their computers.Otherwise I would suggest nzta.

Driver-kaysum2, Jan 8, 2012, 6:12 pm

Maybe the new owner was with State and tried to insure it and a red flag came up saying it was already insured by you . maybe
