It is also possible, in the most serious circumstances, for the court to impose a significantly larger fine and/or disqualify you from driving.

How Do I Defend a Driving Without Insurance Charge?
Driving without Insurance is a “strict liability” offence where you are considered an offender regardless of the intention to commit the offence. Defences to the charges that are available are limited to:
Valid Insurance: You use this to show that you held a valid insurance policy; or
Employees’ Defence: This defence can help you prove that you were driving a vehicle that didn’t belong to you during the course of your employment, and you did not know that you were not covered by insurance.
Despite these limited defences, it is possible you may be saved from the addition of penalty points to your licence if you can show “special reasons” to request the court from doing it. This is usually where motorists have a clear “honest and genuine” belief that they were covered. We can advise you on this process in more detail.
