Driving Without Insurance banner

Services For You

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.

"Michael Gupwell was exceptionally knowledgeable and professional throughout the case. I can only thank you all for the effort you put into the case and undoubtedly would not hesitate to recommend Michael and your practice to others."

"I contacted Wards solicitors after I was informed I was being charged with a criminal offence that I did not commit. I was put in touch with Maxine, a Criminal Defence specialist. Maxine was professional and kind, she advised me and supported me through every step of the process from our initial meeting, to the eventual trail. Nothing was too much trouble for Maxine and the team at Wards, they were always on hand to answer questions. I will be forever grateful to everyone involved for their professional yet compassionate approach to my case and for securing the result that has given me my life back, thank you all."
