We are the ideal professionals to involve if you’re charged with the offence of driving a vehicle without insurance. It is an offence to operate a motor vehicle if you’re not covered by the right insurance. It is also worth knowing that allowing another person to use your motor vehicle without the correct insurance can also be an offence.
The aforementioned offences can attract a standard penalty of £300 fine and 6 penalty points, but if the case goes to court, there is the potential for an unlimited fine, and in the most serious cases, a court may even impose a disqualification from driving.
With the complicated state of car insurance provision, motorists sometimes find themselves in a bad position. If you are ever issued with a Court Summons for driving without insurance, you can always contact Caddick Davies Solicitors for legal guidance. We can offer a free no-obligation consultation to discuss how we can help.
How Do I Defend a Driving Without Insurance Charge?
Considered as a “strict liability” offence, Driving with No Insurance is seen as an offence, irrespective of the driver’s intention. Defence strategies for driving with no insurance are:
Valid Insurance: A defence you can utilise to prove that you held a valid Insurance policy.
Employees’ Defence: It may be possible to prove the vehicle you were driving did not belong to you in the course of your employment and that you were unaware that you were not covered by an insurance provision.
Despite the limited number of defences to the offence of driving with no insurance, it may be possible to request the court not to endorse penalty points on your insurance on the grounds of “special reasons”. These are times when you as a motorist offer an “honest and genuine” belief that you were insured.
