Hardly. It's usually trade insurance as proof. Anyone can buy motor trader insurance and even the dodgies have insurance.

Saying that alot of the legit traders I know now don't bother with trade plates... go figure.

I remember applying for my plates they wanted a zillion copies of everything to prove i was in the trade, i wonder how easy they are to get these days.

To buy Trade insurance you need proof you are a genuine Motor Trader with purchase invoices & receipts. Gone are the days of buying a policy without genuine proof.

I just renewed my trade insurance and they wanted blood. They even wanted copies of licences even though I had given the license viewing codes. 

I remember a bit of a trauma getting plates, some guy from the local office came round to check me out. I guess that wont happen these days.

In your experience that may be true but it doesn't tally up to what I've seen. I had my license viewed as MrC said.

What kind of invoices and receipts did they ask you for?

I’d of thought that too as every year I must send proof of trading to my insurance broker. However it can’t be the case because a few times a year I sell cars to people who state they’ll just put it in their trade insurance. Somehow some of these punters are getting insurance every year & are using trade policies as multi car policies. They’ve never traded in their lives, don’t have trade plates etc. - they just have a few cars lying around. It doesn’t make sense to me.
