All UK motorists should know that it is an offence to use a motor vehicle, be it on a road or a public place, if you’re not covered by at least third-party insurance. A considerable number of people are also unaware that it is illegal for someone to cause or allow another driver to use a vehicle without the valid insurance.

These offences can attract a penalty of a £300 fine and 6 penalty points on your licence as standard. In more serious cases, the motoring court may even impose a disqualification from driving and/or much larger fine.

We appreciate that motorists sometimes get it wrong with situations such as car insurance.

How Do I Defend a Driving Without Insurance Charge?

Driving without Insurance is considered a “strict liability” offence. This means it classes as an offence irrespective of your intentions. Defences to driving without insurance are restricted to the following:

Valid Insurance: where you can prove that you possessed a valid insurance policy; or

Employees’ Defence: this is a defence that allows you to prove that you were driving a vehicle that didn’t belong to you in the course of your employment, and you didn’t know that you were not covered by an insurance policy.

While the range of defences to driving without insurance charges is limited, it may be possible to present a case to the court not to endorse penalty points on your licence on “special reasons” grounds. These are times when you as a motorist had an “honest and genuine” belief that you were insured.
