Driving without insurance offence solicitors

Driving without insurance is an offence; the law requires a driver to have at least third party insurance in place before driving or parking a vehicle on a public highway. If you are found guilty of driving without insurance you face an unlimited driving ban or the possibility of 6-8 penalty points. In addition to this the Court will also impose a fine of up to £5000. For free initial advice relating to driving without insurance call our 24 hour helpline on 0203 816 9274.

A vehicle owner may also be charged with driving without insurance if they allow another party to drive their vehicle knowing that the vehicle is uninsured or that adequate insurance was not in place. The DVLA have recently begun prosecutions where the registered keeper of a vehicle has failed to either insure a vehicle or declare it SORN. For this offence you can face a fine of up to £1000.

Charged with driving without insurance

If you have been charged with driving without insurance contact out motoring offence solicitors for advice and assistance tailored to your personal circumstances. The defence for driving without insurance can be a complex procedure and the sooner you contact a specialist for advice the better.

In some circumstances a person can drive believing that they are insured when the policy is no longer in force. This can often occur when a parent or spouse has mistakenly forgotten to add them to the policy. This can sometimes amount to a special reasons plea which would enable the Court to avoid imposing any penalty points.

Our motoring offence solicitors have a proven track record in helping drivers to avoid penalty points and keep their driving licence, if you believe you could have mitigating or special circumstances contact us for advice.
