Driving Without Insurance

Given the inherent dangers on the road, having valid insurance is vital.

Not only is it an offence to be driving without insurance, you may also be personally liable for any injuries or damage caused in a collision.

Mistakes are made with insurance paperwork, but there is no defence for the offence in law, unless you are driving an employer’s vehicle.

Disqualification for the offence is a significant possibility and the minimum number of points is 6, so committing this offence can easily lead to further difficulties, especially if committed alongside another offence, as is often the case.

For advice and to arrange a free initial consultation, contact our Bristol office on 0117 929 2811.
