If the car is registered, meaning that it has license plates, it must have liability insurance. If you hace a loan, the bank probably requires insurance. If it is just sitting on private property without tags, no insurance needed.

If your car was towed away by police but it is tax has been for an mot and failed but you were working on it and it had insurance were they wrong to take it?

No MOT, providing the vehicle is not dangerous to drive, is NOT a reason for the Police to have a car towed away. A car can be towed away, for no insurance, being driven by an uninsured person, or even reasonable suspicion of being driven with no insurance. No driving license or no tax are also a valid reason to have a car towed away. According to Surrey Police, if they tow your car away by mistake, providing the officer was not negligent, do not have to refund you the costs of recovering your vehicle.
