Love the the direct line post. It does not say no ITV will render insurance invalid It refer to vehicle being roadworthy

I have just checked my Direct Line policy. It does not say I must have an ITV, it does mention roadworthy

Of course Direct Line link doesn't mention itv as it the U.K arm and refers quite clearly to the MOT. And does state so on their website

Is my car or van insurance valid without an MOT?

In most cases, as soon as your MOT expires, your insurance will no longer be valid. So if you have an accident, your van won’t be covered by your insurance provider and you’ll have to pay for repairs yourself – or potentially have your van written off. If the accident was your fault, you’ll also have to pay for the damage caused to any other vehicles involved, which could be very expensive. And, because it’s also illegal to drive without valid insurance, if you’re caught, you can face an unlimited fine or even disqualification from driving, plus 6 to 8 penalty points.

Even driving to an MOT maybe a big problem if you read their website.

Sorry. Love. But ‘In most cases, as soon as your MOT expires, your insurance will no longer be valid. ’. Does not say what you are relying on

If it was invalid without as MOT it would say that, just as it say unambiguously that being unroadworthy renders the policy invalid. As one can legally drive, any distance, by the reasonably shortest route, to an MOT appointment, without a valid MOT, and one is insured, shows that what you say cannot be correct in law.

ah now your trying to be specific as to why one was driving with an expired itv or mot. Good luck arguing the toss with Trafico or the Guardia or if in an unfortunate accident waffling on to your insurer when they refuse to pay out on the slightest technicality. As they are prone to do.....unless you are now going to argue their case that insurance companies are ever so understanding and never try to find a way to pay out....any way all yours as I can see that you must at all costs however ludicrous have the final word....I'm out and happy motoring.

If so, by whom? It certainly doesn't have to be Repsol
It is the law.

Best to use Repsol or Cepsa-recommended firms. There is a well-known scam where men in overalls and phoney credentials knock on your door and say they are there to do the check, take cash in advance saying they'll be back tomorrow, and are never seen again.

Direct Line are called Linea Directa in Spain.
It even has a Brexit, how it affects you section on it's website.

TBH I’m unsure what any of this has to do with the OP question which I presume has been answered!

It could have been much worse had staff working in the kitchen not smelt gas and alerted the Policia Local who evacuated the premises.

Linea Directa - Direct Line Insurance in Spain
Having recently been shopping around for home insurance I think you'll find that Linea Directa have not been related in any way to Direct line in the U.K for the last ten years. It is owned 100% by the Spanish BankInter. They are wholly separate companies.
