Driving Without Insurance

Do you require an expert Driving Without Insurance Offence Lawyer? If you drive a vehicle without insurance on a public road, you risk it triggering a police ANPR (automatic number plate recognition) camera and being hit with a roadside penalty of £300 and six penalty points on your licence.

If the case goes to court, you could be hit with an unlimited fine and a driving ban.

Driving Without Insurance in Scotland: the Law

Road Traffic Act 1988 Section 143: Users of motor vehicles to be insured or secured against third-party risks

A person must not use a motor vehicle on a road or other public place unless there is in force in relation to the use of the vehicle by that person such a policy of insurance or such a security in respect of third party risks as complies with the requirements of this Part of this Act, and

A person must not cause or permit any other person to use a motor vehicle on a road or other public place unless there is in force in relation to the use of the vehicle by that other person such a policy of insurance or such a security in respect of third party risks as complies with the requirements of this Part of this Act

If you are caught driving without insurance otherwise known as S143 Road Traffic Act 1988 you will receive a minimum of 6 points and a fine. The Court has the power to disqualify at its discretion this tends only to be used if you have previous convictions for a similar offence It’s important to note that if you allow someone to drive your car without checking that they are insured either through your own or their own insurance, you can be charged with causing and permitting them to drive with no insurance and subject to the same penalty.

If you are driving in the course of your employment then that is a defence if your employer told you you were insured.

How We Can Help

If you are driving under the genuine belief that you are insured then ask for a special reason proof for non endorsation. If successful then you will not receive any points and may be spared a fine. The onus of proof is on the accused.

What can I say, Euan and his staff have been fantastic from start to finish on what has been an extremely stressful period of my life. Extremely professional and another case to add to their name whereby the right verdict was reached when I thought all hope was lost. I can't recommend highly enough and would have no hesitation using Euan again although hopefully not anytime soon. Thanks again guys for providing professional support over the last 2 challenging years.

Having had the misfortune to have been charged with a motoring offence, I was recommended Euan Robertson as a solicitor who would be able to assist. from the moment I spoke with Euan to having my case completely discharged, I found him to be professional, matter of fact and certainly put me at ease whilst I was going through this experience. Could not rate his service high enough.
