Sat nav horror: Car insurance could be invalidated and motorists fined £2,500

However, becoming distracted could see motorists fined up to £2,500 for distracted driving although charges could easily rise. 

In severe cases, road users may face a dangerous driving charge which coemsa with up to a £5,000 fine. 

Road users may also be issued up to nine penalty points on a driving licence and a temporary driving ban. 

Car insurance holders can terminate policies or increase your monthly premiums if motorists break simple road laws. 

Go Compare car insurance spokesperson, Matt Oliver, said: “The average car buyer could find there are modifications they’re simply not aware of. 

“Typically, modifications are anything which isn’t standard on a car, which could include alloy wheels, a satellite navigation system or even tinted windows. 

“It’s always worth checking what the factory standard is for your model of car to avoid landing in hot water when it comes to making a claim.”

Invalidating your car insurance cover could lead to dramatic consequences for motorists who could become blacklisted. 

This means motorists would be unable to take out future policies with the insurer which could force them to find alternative cover.

Many traditional firms will also not look favorably upon motorists who have invalidated their agreement which could see motorists pushed towards specialist cover. 

This is often more expensive than mainstream providers and may offer less cover than some motorists are used to.
