I got caught driving with no insurance on 27th August but I didn’t know I wasn’t insured. Insurance ran out on the 20th but I wasn’t the policy holder so the letter/email wasn’t issued to me, but at the time of getting stopped I genuinely thought I was insured n told the officer that too.

I’ve been told with driving charges they have to charge you within 6 months or it’s done & they usually get back to you within the first 3 months. It’s now been over 3 months so I’m just wondering what will happen?

Also I know somebody that got away with it for the same reason, literally nothing happened to them and it’s been over a year. Need advice or some assurance.
They may have decided not to prosecute.
Have you taken any legal advice? If he is a member of the AA or RAC they normally have a legal advice helpline.
You can also see a criminal solicitor for initial advice at least.

Thanks for replying. I don’t really want to get any solicitor just in case something brings it back up for them and they decide to prosecute me if you know what I mean lol but you’ve given me some hope so thanks🙌🏾😂

Right... so the policyholder (who's car this is) neglected to tell you that the insurance had ran out? I don't buy it.

I don't buy it.
Neither did the policy holder it seems. A dysfunctional family, maybe?

So, this means their policy wasn't renewed. Which you have to opt out of, or there was a missed insurance payment which the policyholder would've been aware of either way.

How did he/she forget?

That wasn't an assumption. It was an evidence-based assessment. Only a dysfunctional set-up would fail to discuss such an important matter.

I get the impression this thread is bait. But that's just based on how stupid it is and I don't know why I'm coming to that conclusion when I've seen worse that has transpired to be true.
