The Parliamentary under-secretary of state for transport Mike Penning has backed GPS-based telematics car insurance policies.

"Telematics has the potential to help drivers access more affordable insurance premiums, but we know this isn't the only solution - partly because these policies are by their nature self-selecting,” he told Post magazine.

He continued: “That is why we have made changes to the driving test and are looking at what more we can do to make sure that all drivers are better prepared for life on the road. In addition we are taking tough action against uninsured drivers who push up costs for the honest majority."
