Have they required you to produce documents (DVL, insurance etc.) at a police station or did they say you would be sent a notice of intended prosecution?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

They ask me which police station is nearest to my house.I replied lower earley Reading

Expert:  LondonlawyerJ replied 2 years ago.
They may have given you a "producer" ie a notice requiring you to produce your DVL and insurance documents at your local police station. Did they do this? If so you are under a duty to produce your documents.

Now I have insuranced my car can drive my car

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

No they have not given me a "producer" notice to produce documents at my local police station.

Expert:  LondonlawyerJ replied 2 years ago.
If you didn't have insurance at the time then it may well be that you will receive a Notice of intended prosecution or a summons to court. You will need to admit the offence (the only defence if it is a work car and you believed your employers had paid your insurance) and pay the fine.

It is my car .I have insuared my cars last ten years and more.with this company If I dont replie then they atomatical renew my policy.But this time they didnt do it. What I do.

Expert:  LondonlawyerJ replied 2 years ago.
I am afraid that is not a defence. You will need to admit the offence. It is very good mitigation though.
