It is illegal to use a vehicle on a road or in a public place in the UK without at least third-party insurance cover. Additionally, you should know that it is an offence to allow or cause another person to use your vehicle without the right insurance. These offences could lead to a standard penalty of being fined £300 and receiving 6 penalty points, while in the most serious cases, it is possible to receive a much large fine and even disqualification from driving.
For a matter as potentially complicated as vehicle insurance regulations, we understand things can go wrong sometimes.

How Do I Defend a Driving Without Insurance Charge?
Defences to driving without insurance charges are available but limited. They include:
Valid Insurance: One you can use to prove that you held a valid insurance policy; or
Employees’ Defence: make use of this defence to show that you were driving a vehicle that didn’t belong to you in the period of your employment, and you didn’t know that you were not covered by valid insurance.
Whilst limitations to defences to driving without insurance charge exist, it may be possible to ask the court not to endorse on your licence penalty points on the basis of “special reasons”. There are actually cases where you possess as the motorist a “genuine and honest” belief that you were covered by insurance.
