depends on catergury. there is 4 a,b,c, and d.

a = fire, to be crushed
b = chassis damaged bodyshell to be crushed
c = cost of repairs outways value of vehicle, repairable assest, insurer decided not to repair.
d = constructive total loss, repair cost close to vehicle valuevalue person requested it be deemed beyond economical repair.

Cat d you dont need to tell your insurer cat c may need a vic check and a new MOT aswell. Most companies dont mind but like you say some lik enorwich union do put a load on.

A "Q Plate" is issued if the original vehicle identity cannot be found.

Kit Cars are a classic example.

If its a catagory c then you have to apply for a VIC Check, only then will the registration documennt be released and then you have to get it MOT'd & Taxed.

Catagory D does not need this.

you find a lot of sierra cossies have a q plate because they have been stolen had the VIN (vehicle identification number ) ground off so they cant tell what the vehicle is on any database, then when its recovered it has no identity so the dvla give it a new one and slap a Q plate on it.
