Driving Without Insurance
Hi I was sitting in my sisters car and my mum was driving. She had an appointment at the hospital, we were round the corner from the hospital literally 5 mins away and she didn’t feel good and couldn’t drive anymore so I drove the car from there.
As soon as I turned into the hospital the police officer stopped me and checked that I didn’t know I thought that I had insurance, but I am a named driver on another car and a van the police officer gave me a producer which I get 6 points and a £200 fine.
I have been passed for 4 years nearly and I am 22 years old. How long will it take to clear the points and is there another way round this thank you?
I’m afraid that there is no way of avoiding the points in relation to this matter unless you can show that you were driving in the context of a genuine medical emergency. You would need to prove it was a matter of life and death for the court to find that the penalty points should not be imposed on your licence.
You are going to get 6 penalty points on your licence for this matter and a fine. The penalty points last for 3 years and can be removed after they have been on your driving licence for 4 years.
If you get 12 penalty points on your licence within a 3 years period you would get a totting ban for 6 months unless you can persuade the court that you will suffer exceptional hardship as a result.
