It is illegal to drive a vehicle on a road or in a public place without at least third party insurance. The police could fine you up to £300 and 6 penalty points if you’re caught driving a vehicle you’re not insured to drive. The courts have the power to impose an unlimited fine and disqualify you from driving.
Often, the issue of whether or not an individual was driving without appropriate insurance will depend on the reason for which a vehicle was being used. A court hearing will often involve examination and cross examination to establish the purpose of the vehicle’s use. Having a lawyer by your side can make all the difference. Our experienced traffic law barrister barrister is able to advocate on your behalf and defend the charges.
