How Do I Defend a Driving Without Insurance Charge?
Driving without insurance is regarded as a “strict liability” offence, meaning that you’re considered to have committed an offence irrespective of any intention to do so. The defences to driving without insurance are limited and include:
Valid Insurance: You can defend yourself by proving that you actually possessed a valid policy of insurance; or
Employees’ Defence: You can utilise this to prove that you were driving a vehicle that didn’t belong to you during the course of your employment and you were not aware that you were not covered.
Whilst there are strict limitations to the defences to driving without insurance, there are cases where you possess an “honest and genuine” belief that you were insured. This could in some cases be used to request that the court do not endorse penalty points on “special reasons” grounds.
