Sorry, but surely it is for the insurers, if they want our business, to understand the market and the vehicles they insure?Hello everyone,
We note that that there’s been some discussion in this thread on Californias that are specified as MPV on the V5C document.
We are delighted to confirm that we can and do provide cover for Californias, if the V5C shows MPV. We would however recommend that where you can, you try and get the DVLA to register your vehicle as a ‘van with side windows’. We say this because not all insurers are able to provide cover for a California registered as a MPV and we like to treat customers fairly and give them the opportunity to maximise their options and have access to the widest possible choice of insurers, to get the most suitable and affordable cover available. We’re always happy to speak to California owners and to offer assistance, as we know at times vehicle classification and insurance can be confusing.
Going to DVLA on and ad-hoc basis to change the vehicle type, as defined by the manufacturer, in consultation with the DVLA, is a fudge. Furthermore, wouldn't we have to declare this change to the insurer as a "relevant fact"?
