With a person over the age of 21 as required, in their vehicle of the person accompanying them which the learner is not insured on, who would be to blame - the learner or the vehicle owner? And would they be facing fines or points or criminal charges?

I'm pretty sure the learner would be charged for it, not sure about the vehicle owner. You're supposed to be responsible for your own driving, you should know if you're insured or not. I'm not 100% sure though. Why? you're not planning on doing it are you?
learner driver would probably get a fine and points/a ban. Just looked it up and it seems that the vehicle owner would also be charged for knowingly allowing a learner to drive uninsured in his/her car.Last edited by deedee123; 07-04-2013 at 23:36.

The driver is responsible for ensuring the vehicle is road legal
The owner / RK is also responsible for this and may be charged with causing or permitting versions
a supervising driver may have a defence that s/he believed insurance etc was in place

Charges of driving without insurance for the learner.
Charges of permitting a motor vehicle to be driven without insurance for the owner.
Unless the owner claims he didn't permit (which would be impossible if they were in the car with them supervising, but anyway), then the learner would also face a charge of taking a vehicle without consent.
