No insurance

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.

  • 5 star review  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.

  • 5 star review  Ann Crighton is Amazing! My partner was summoned to court with driving without due care and attention. We spoke to Ann and straight away she agreed to help us with our plea of not guilt. She organised for us to meet her in person, helped us with understanding paperwork and how the whole process worked as we didn't have a clue. We went to court yesterday and she absolutely smashed it! My partner was found not guilty. The cost was also the best we could find. No hidden fees! Thanks so much Ann for all your help and brilliant result. Kelly and Ashley
