No Insurance On Private Land


My father was reported by a neighbour to the police for straightening the angle of my mother’s car on the drive in front of their garage. There was no accident or damage of any kind.

My parents called their insurance company who clarified that my father was not insured to drive my mothers car, which is a motability car, however he does have a current driving licence and the car was taxed and insured.

The insurance company said it is petty and they are not bothered, but the complaint to the police is being investigated and the police have said my father could be fined. Can you clarify the law on private land?

Paula Says:

I need to know more about what has actually happened to be able to help you. Are you saying that you were not the driver at the time of the alleged offences? Were you sent a NIP asking you to name the driver or has someone else named you as the driver?

Have you got a hearing date for court? You need to cast a doubt on the suggestion that you were driving at the time. The prosecution has to prove that you were beyond reasonable doubt.

You are at risk of 5-10 points for these offences. Do you have any points already? If so, how many?
