DVLA has suspended my driving licence - is my car insurance still valid?

My son is a named driver on my car insurance policy, but the DVLA has stopped my driving licence as I had a medical problem following an accident. Is my car insurance still valid?

A driver requires a valid licence to take out car insurance. If your licence has been revoked or suspended by the DVLA then your insurance will most likely be void, but you will need to check this with your insurer (and also inform them of your change in circumstances).
