Penalty Avoided for No Insurance Charge

Hylton-Potts - London Based Law Firm Helping People Across the UK since 1999

Anyone without insurance is an “absolute” offence which means there is no possibility of pleading “not guilty” if there is no valid insurance.  The penalty however can be extremely light. Here is a recent example;

Mr C was caught in his mobility vehicle in May and June 2013 being driven by a friend from the Ukraine.  The Ukrainian friend’s insurance policy was said to cover the vehicle, but because of the unrest he could produce no original insurance certificate.

Accordingly he had to plead guilty, but by our skilfully explaining the circumstances and mitigation, no penalty points were imposed and the driver merely had to pay costs of £85.
