How Do I Defend a Driving Without Insurance Charge?
Despite the fact that Driving without Insurance is a “strict liability” offence, that is, you are considered an offender regardless of any intention to commit the offence, there are certain defences, limited to the following:
Valid Insurance: A defence you can use to prove that you possessed a valid insurance policy; or
Employees’ Defence: You can prove that you were driving a vehicle that didn’t belong to you during the course of your employment, and you didn’t know that you were not covered by an insurance policy.
In spite of the limitations to the defences to driving without insurance offence, in cases where the motorist possess an “honest and genuine” belief that they were insured, the court may be persuaded not to add the penalty points to your licence due to “special reasons”. We can provide more information on this if you contact us.
