Driving documents offences
Driving without a licence carries a maximum fine of £1,000, between three and six penalty points and a discretionary driving ban. Driving without a valid MOT certificate carries a £30 fixed penalty notice or a maximum fine of £1,000 if the matter reaches court.
Driving whilst uninsured carries a fixed penalty of between six and eight penalty points and a maximum fine of £5,000, as well as disqualification for up to 12 months in serious cases. The police also have the power to seize and, in some cases, destroy the vehicle that is being driven without insurance and we have expert lawyers to assist in preventing this happening.
If you are stopped by the police then you may be asked to produce these documents. If you do not have them with you at the time, you will be given a HORT/1 form, known as a ‘producer’, requiring you to produce them at your local police station within seven days. If you fail to produce these documents then you are committing a criminal offence and could also be charged with driving without a licence, insurance or an MOT certificate, even if you actually have these documents.
If you are charged with any of these offences and wish to plead not guilty then it is essential to seek specialist legal advice at the earliest opportunity. At Minton Morrill, we are highly experienced in representing clients in cases relating to driving document offences.
