Driving without insurance

Allegations of driving with no insurance often occur when an employee is driving a company car. The employer may be prosecuted for no insurance if the vehicle driven by the employee is not insured. Likewise employers need to be aware of the risk of a prosecution for aiding and abetting driving without insurance when they allow employees to drive company vehicles. It is imperative that checks are made that insurance is in place as the penalty for the offence is 6-8 penalty points and in certain circumstances disqualification can be made for 12 months.
