Frequently asked questions.

If you are found guilty of driving without insurance you face the possibility of 6 – 8 points on your driving licence or an unlimited ban. The Court can also issue you with a fine of up to £5,000.

If you are found to be driving a company car without insurance, and you were unaware, your employer’s failure to insure the vehicle means that you have a defence against charges brought against you. However, even if you’re cleared of wrongdoing, your employer could still be convicted for allowing you to drive while uninsured.

It is not the responsibility of your insurer to notify you about your insurance cover, their duty is to honour any insurance policy you have with them. You are responsible for ensuring that your vehicle is covered, therefore, you are liable if your insurer doesn’t automatically renew your cover.

However, despite being responsible, such circumstances may amount to ‘special reasons’, which could help you avoid a penalty.

As you were using the vehicle, it is your responsibility to ensure that you are appropriately insured, meaning that you have committed an offence. Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to avoid penalty points by arguing  ‘special reasons’.

A ‘special reason’ is something that does not amount to a defence, but is connected with the offence. It must be a mitigating circumstance and something which the court should properly take into account. Examples in no insurance cases might include:

  • A discrepancy with your insurance company – e.g. cancelling your insurance without notifying you
  • You genuinely believed that you were fully insured at the time
  • You were driving someone else’s vehicle in reliance on their confirmation that their policy would cover you or that a policy had been taken out
