Recycling is catching on like never before in today’s make do and mend Britain. More than 100,000 writes-off get back on the UK’s roads each year.

Musician-friendly motor insurer Swiftcover reckon 105,000 former write-offs came back into circulation legally last year after passing the relevant checks. But many more return without any form of check, it is claimed, with incautious second-hand car buyers putting themselves at risk of finding their motors uninsurable.

The DVLA allegedly has “no idea how many people are driving write-offs.

Swiftcover’s handy hints for those buying a second-hand car include:

• Ask the seller whether it’s a write-off.
• Don’t lie about a write-off when applying for insurance.
• Get a friend who knows about cars to look it over for you.
