Cover Note Books & Electronic Cover Notes

We’re currently in the process of updating our documentation to reflect the change to the regulatory bodies.

Cover note books and Green Cards have now been amended and are available for you to order when you need them.

You can continue to use your existing documentation until early 2014, however you will need to ensure you have ordered the new versions before 31 March 2014 as they will not be compliant on 1 April 2014.

You can order the new documentation through your usual process.

Cover Note Books

Many brokers who write Aviva motor insurance have been authorised to issue Cover Notes on our behalf. To ensure that we comply with Financial Conduct Authority requirements and assist you in the use and control of these important documents we have outlined some guidelines on using them. Please ensure you take time to read these.

Control and Protection Guidelines

The following act as a reminder of the Cover Note storage, use, issue of and reporting procedures:

  1. Keep them in secure storage with keys held by responsible, nominated individuals.
  2. Restrict stock levels, for example, one book in use and one spare.
  3. Ensure adequate procedures are in place to enable prompt identification if missing or lost.
  4. Report lost cover notes / cover note books to the Aviva Cover Note Book Admin Unit immediately, with details of the serial numbers involved. This should be followed in writing from a senior representative of the broker, e.g. Director, Partner, Office Manager.
  5. Report theft of or fraudulent use of any cover notes/ cover note books to the Police, with details of the serial numbers involved and inform the Aviva Cover Note Book Admin Unit of the Police crime reference number.
  6. Return without delay completed or obsolete cover note books to Aviva - A dedicated PO Box number is available, full address below.
