Hello, and thank you for your question. I am your Expert and I will provide the answer you require.
1. The first thing I would advise you is to get a good Road Traffic Solicitor to represent you in court as it will mean a reduced sentence on each of the counts you face before the court. The second thing is that you need to realise that driving with no insurance normally attracts a fine of 3,000 euros and a driving ban of one year. For no tax, you will face a fine of about 800 euro. However, if you plead your case properly, you will not attract any penalty for no being able to show you were the owner of the car. The third thing I would suggest is that you present yourself properly in court, preferably in a suit and appear respectable as the opinion of the District Judge often depends upon the view he takes of the Defendant. However, you should seek to put your best appearance on and be legally represented to get the best results from the court case.
