Driving without insurance is a serious offence. Even if you genuinely believed you were insured, you're still committing a criminal offence and could receive up to 8 penalty points, a maximum fine of £5,000 and a possible driving ban.
Using our experience we'll work quickly to understand your circumstances and advise you on the best action to take. Whether you were using your vehicle for business or domestic use, we can help you prove that your insurance was valid, or work to reduce the penalty imposed for driving without insurance.
Our solicitors can offer advice and defend you for the following driving with no insurance charges:
You may think that you were genuinely insured when driving your vehicle, but if you're caught driving without insurance, it's up to you to prove that you were insured.
This can be difficult to do, and working with your insurance documentation can be unclear and confusing. So we can use our experience and technical knowledge of the law to help identify the terms of your policy documentation and assess your individual circumstances to build a successful defence.
If you were mislead into thinking you were genuinely insured, or you were uninsured through no fault of your own, it is possible to defend your case through special reasons.
Whilst you are still committing an offence, it is possible for us to build a defence that could result in a less severe penalty.
