For a driver to be able to drive any car, truck or vehicle it would need to be registered first with both the insurer and the national motor insurance database (MID). Though the short answer is no, it doesn't allow a driver to simply drive any vehicle without conditions first being met.

How does Motor Traders Insurance Work With Multiple Vehicles?

The worst kept secret, which sees private car drivers try to get trade cover also, is the offering of trade plates. This is a government system which enables a set of registered number plates, unique to the business or part time motor trader, which can be transferred between vehicles. While the majority of vehicles have a unique number plate assigned for its entire existence, a motor trader can use the same trade plates amongst a variety of cars and vehicles. The MID is a quick and authoritative tool that is updated by vehicle owners and insurers. but also viewed by third parties such as the government, police, insurers and prospective buyers of vehicles to check authenticity of ownership. A motor trader can buy and sell cars with these plates, making them roadworthy for a short period without having to take out individual insurance per new vehicle. The trader simply updates the MID each and every time - as long as the vehicle falls within the parameters. For example some high valued classic cars or sports cars may be exempt on the lowest cost premiums.

A separate clause in the insurance particulars allows for the registering of other named drivers that are most likely 25 years or younger  have at least three years driving experience and are resident in the UK or with valid British driving licence. Named drivers can be added and removed at any time but notification is always required. While any of the named drivers can drive a vehicle with the trade plates, an unnamed driver cannot. The same occurs in respect of private cars of the proprietor of the insured party. A clause under social, domestic and pleasure enables any named driver to take receipt of a vehicle, be insured, as long as the private vehicle is also submitted to the insurer.
