Consequences of driving a car with the Provisional Licence, without insurance and ‘L’ plate

Questions & AnswersConsequences of driving a car with the Provisional Licence, without insurance and ‘L’ plate
RSL Law Staff asked 1 year ago

Good afternoon! I found your contact details on one of the forums, where it said that you can provide a free consultation. The story is as follows: my name is Daniel; I was stopped by the police today in the morning while driving. I have the Provisional License. When I was stopped, my father, who is the owner of the car, sat next to me. He has had the English driving licence for more than 7 years. The police asked whether my name is included in my father’s insurance policy. I had no insurance. There was no car learner plate on the car either.
What are the consequences and what should I do in this situation?
Thank you. Daniel.

In these circumstances:

  1. Being a driver learner and driving without the plate ‘L’ may lead to a £100 fine and/or up to 3 penalty points;
  2. Consequences of driving without car insurance, unfortunately, can be more significant. Such an offence can lead to a £5,000 fine and 6 to 8 penalty points.

However, a court’s decision may be less “strict”. It depends on many factors. For example, the fact that your father sat next to you in the car could be a mitigating circumstance. Good luck.

Best wishes
