Are you charged with driving without insurance or not keeping the vehicle continuously insured?
What would be your defence?
Sorry if I'm missing the point but you don't seem to have a defence to the substantive offence?
You can't be charged. You would have been convicted in absence.
This isn't a bail act offence.
Oh you mean costs.
The only way to do that is to make a stat dec and get this set aside.
If successful you could plead guilty reducing the costs order.
Obviously though the stat dec has to be accepted first. If it not your fault it went to the wrong address then you will succeed. If you didn't update the DVLA's records in time when you moved then the stat dec might be harder to achieve.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Well, they could refuse it on that basis. They don't always but they could.
You will only find out if you try.
For keeping uninsured? £1000. But it won't come to that.
