How Do I Defend a Driving Without Insurance Charge?
The offence of Driving without Insurance is considered a “strict liability” one. This basically means that you committed the offence regardless of any intention to do so. Notable defences to driving without insurance include:
Valid Insurance: You can prove that you were in possession of a valid policy of insurance with this defence; or
Employees’ Defence: You can utilise this to prove that the car you were driving did not belong to you during the course of your employment and you didn’t know that you were not covered by valid insurance.
While there are limited defences available to driving without insurance, in cases where you as the motorist had an “honest and genuine” belief that you were insured, it may be possible to persuade the court from endorsing penalty points on your licence. We can advise you on whether or not this is a realistic possibility.
