once again
driving borrowed car / stopped by police - rutine control / full comprehensive insurance with no allowed to drive other cars ..
from dvla - 6 points plus 300 - proposition
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
is it good idea to take it to court?
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
iiI know this is an offence - but car was insured // this was only my mistake ..
Is there chance in a Court to change those 6 points into a fine or anything else?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 4 months ago.

Were you insured to drive this car?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 4 months ago.

In that case, it is not worth going to court.

You will be convicted because you are guilty because you do not have insurance.

Having no insurance is an offence of strict liability. Either you are insured or you are not. You are not.

Therefore there is no defence.

Pay the fixed penalty. You will be convicted at court and have to pay costs.

Can I clarify anything for you?

thank you.. anything I can do with points? my first points and 6 this time
Expert:  Jo C. replied 4 months ago.

Only either be acquitted or argue special reasons but you are not raising a special reasons argument here on the face of it.
