How Do I Defend a Driving Without Insurance Charge?
Categorised as a “strict liability” offence, driving without insurance is regarded as a motoring offence, irrespective of any intent to commit the act. There are limitations on the number of defences to driving with no insurance charge:
Valid Insurance: You utilise this to prove that you were in possession of a valid policy of insurance; or
Employees’ Defence: you make use of this to show that the vehicle you were driving didn’t belong to you in the course of your employment, and you were unaware that you were not covered by insurance.
There are a limited range of defences to the charge of driving without insurance, but it may still be possible to ask the court not to impose penalty points on a “special reasons” basis. These are times that you “genuinely and honestly” believe that you were insured. We can advise on your legal options in this area.
