Defences to a driving without insurance charge

Driving without insurance in England or Wales is considered a “strict liability” offence. This means you’ll be viewed as an offender whether it was deliberate or not. Our solicitors can come up with defences to the offence, which include:

– Valid Insurance: You can prove you were covered by a valid insurance policy

– Employees’ Defence: You can prove that the vehicle you were driving wasn’t yours in the period of employment, and you were not aware that you were uninsured.

While there are few defences to the driving without insurance charge, our solicitors may be able to persuade the court not to endorse penalty points on “special reasons” grounds. At this point, we will need to have demonstrated that you as the motorist had a “genuine and honest belief” that you were covered by insurance.

 

It is important you understand that the outcome of a caught driving without insurance charge can be majorly determined by the level of legal advice and representation you get. Therefore, take care to involve the right legal expert. Our solicitors will be able to explore the available defences and help you if you are caught driving without insurance in Chester.
