Although this is a strict liability offence (in other words if you have no insurance you have no defence and the Court will impose 6-8 points and fine you too) there may be legal exceptions to this e.g. you were driving your employer’s vehicle and he was responsible for the insurance or the insurance may be voidable by the insurance company and not void (meaning you were technically insured and, therefore, not guilty). Even if you are guilty of driving without insurance, I may well be able to persuade the Court that there are ‘Special Reasons’ for not endorsing your licence with points e.g. a person you trusted, such as your father, was responsible for the insurance and led you to believe you were insured. There are many different circumstances that could amount to Special Reasons – I can give you specialist advice on what could or could not amount to Special Reasons.

Highly recommended! Ann was immediately available for me, at very short notice. She was helpful, thorough and super organised. She helped me to make the case dropped. The best is she is not just an incredibly talented barrister but a wonderful caring person. If you need a quick, super-professional help accompanied by confidence and great moral support, Ann is your best bet to win!
I hired Ann a few months ago when i received a speeding ticket which put me at risk of losing my license. Ann was professional, caring , and absolutely methodical in breaking down my case for exceptional hardship. We won the case by following Ann's;s lead . i recommend her to anyone . She is a great barrister as well as a lovely person!!!!
From the off Ann was very thorough and extremely knowledgable regarding driving offences that have been sent to court. Ann was very helpful - the case was thrown out and justice served. I highly recommend her services as she is an extremely friendly and experienced lawyer and I would use her again.
Ann successfully represented me in court, today. The case itself had been postponed 3 times, across 8 months, due to Covid, and despite it being disjointed, and ongoing, Ann has remained true to our initial agreement, been calm and clear throughout, and defended my case in an extremely compelling way today. I felt, throughout, that I had someone kind, but also tenacious, in my corner. I'm extremely pleased with the outcome, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ann to others.
The best in the business - you won’t go wrong if you engage Ann
