The self build motorhome insurance is a specialty type of coverage that is generally applied to a converted van. These for the most part are less expensive than off the shelf caravans or motorhomes that are for sale.
Once the van is converted it must be reclassified by the DVLA and be up to their standards and requirements. Failure to do this and the insurance policy will be automatically canceled. When insufficient information is sent to the DVLA, they can just reject your filing or ask for an inspection of the vehicle.
Insurance coverage can begin when the conversion is about to begin or upon its completion. If the policy is taken out upon completion, there will be no coverage during the build and the self build motorhome will not be protected. It will also be illegal to test drive it on the roadway.
