Policy Documents Not Recieved

I have bought my car insurance but I haven’t received my car insurance policy documents yet. Am I insured to drive? Ideally you should not drive the vehicle until you have either the certificate of insurance or cover note in your possession as the onus is on you to prove that there is insurance in force at the time of driving a vehicle on the public highway. These documents are often electronic and sent to your email address if you have one, so make sure you to check that first. It makes sense to arrange an insurance policy some days prior to the date you wish the policy to commence.
