Do I need to keep my old car insured while I'm selling it?

I've purchased a new car but haven't yet sold the old one. Do I need to keep this insured in the interim while I'm selling it?

It depends whether it's on the road or not. If you're selling it, then someone may want to test drive it. You have to have insurance continuously in force by law now. So I would suggest yes because most insurers will not bother too much if you insure for a short period of time.
