Vehicles that are not covered by car insurance, even if they are not in use, are to be targeted through a new government campaign.
Road safety minister Mike Penning emphasised that with 400 vehicles seized every day, it is time for police to focus their attentions elsewhere.
As a result, the DVLA will work alongside the Motor Insurers' Bureau to identify people who own cars without adequate insurance, who will then receive written warning.
If the owner still fails to insure the car, they will be faced with a £100 fine, which could then be followed by the vehicle being seized and destroyed if further action is not taken.
"Uninsured drivers push up premiums for other motorists and often drive with no regard for other road users, so it is vital that we do everything we can to keep them off the roads," said Mr Penning.
Last month, the Department for Transport revealed that more efforts would be made to make speed camera information widely available to the public.
