I am a student immigrant in the UK and I drove for the very first time a car I did not know but later understood was not insured. I bought the car from the seller where I was told that the MOT, Road Tax and Insurance were intact.
I collected the MOT and Road Tax documents but I was told by the seller that I am insured under him to drive it to my place of board and then get it insured under my name. I had believed the seller, to whom I explained my vulnerability about the traffic law since i just got to the UK newly.
I then drove the car with this intent in my mind that I was insured. I never wanted to drive without insurance, and if I had known that what the seller told me was wrong I would not have driven the car, but due to my ignorance and illusion I confidently took the car.
I was convicted two months ago, but I have always thought that I do not deserve this conviction since the owner knowing fully well that I needed to be insured made me to drive the car to fulfill the deceitfulness of his aim to sell or get rid of the car at all cost, thus as a result putting me into problem unknowingly.
I have just thought this is injustice. Do you please have any advice for me if I can prove beyond reasonable doubts that I drove the car without a willful act.
Thanks and hope to receive from you.
I’m afraid that it is your responsibility to make sure that all your documents are in order before you drive.
You will have got 6-8 points on your driving licence and you will need to urgently appeal the decision out of time if you want to make a special reasons argument.
Come back to me if you would like my help but I would charge you private fee to give it a go and I cannot promise you that we will succeed.
