You are at the risk of being fined £300 and receiving 6 penalty points as standard, while in the most serious cases, a motoring court may impose a much larger fine or even disqualify you from driving if you commit the offences above.

How Do I Defend a Driving Without Insurance Charge?
Termed as a “strict liability” offence, Driving without Insurance is an offence regardless of any intention to commit the offence. Defences to driving without insurance in the country are restricted to:
Valid Insurance: You can prove with this that you possessed a valid insurance policy; or
Employees’ Defence: also a defence for you to utilise. Use this to show that you were driving a car that didn’t belong to you during the period of employment, and you were not aware that you were not insured.
While there exist few defences to the offence of driving without insurance, in cases where you have an “honest and genuine” belief that you were insured, it may be possible to persuade the court from endorsing penalty points on your licence on “special reasons” grounds.
