Driving without insurance is covered by section 143 of the Road Traffic Act 1988. Failure to have appropriate cover in place can incur serious penalties ranging from 6 penalty points to disqualification.
There are several possible defences to driving without insurance, so it is essential that you seek legal advice as soon as possible. Our expert Road Traffic lawyers will work hard to identify a valid defence or mitigate the impact of any penalty imposed.
It is possible for the court decide that special circumstances exist in your case. This means that whilst you may not have had a defence to the charge, you were under a genuine, reasonably held belief that you had been insured to drive when stopped by the Police. If the Court accepts your explanation you could avoid the penalty points being endorsed on your licence.
