Yes, I've read that.

What I need to know is whether her boyfriend's fully comp insurance covers her to drive his car or her own insurance extends to other cars?

This depends on the insurance policy not law so its not something I would know.

I can tell you the consequences for driving without insurance but I presume you want to know whether she has a defence?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

no she is not covered to drive his car but plz can you tell me outcome


 

Expert:  Jo C. replied 3 years ago.

They will probably give her a fixed penalty fine of £200 and 6 points.

Since she has been driving for less than 2 years though that will unfortunately lead to revocation under the new drivers scheme.

They may charge her and send her to court. They seem to do that when it suits them really.

The difficulty with that is that it would probably just lead to 6 points at court and a high financial penalty so it doesn't really assist if they do take that action.

There is an outside chance of a short immediate ban at Court. The advantage of that is that at the end of the ban period she would get her licence back without needing to take the test again and it would be clean but it would have a horrendous affect upon her insurance premiums.

I'm sorry this isn't the answer you wanted but it is the position that you face and I have a duty to inform you truthfully.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information.
